Why do some people "sound gay" but not others? Why are gay voices a mainstay of pop culture but also a trigger for bullying and harassment?

Following a break up with his boyfriend, journalist David Thorpe sets out on a quest to unravel a linguistic mystery...All his life, like many gay men, Thorpe has felt self-conscious about his stereotypically un-macho voice. But what are its origins? And why is there such a stigma attached to "sounding gay"? As Thorpe consults with everyone from speech therapists to public figures to complete strangers, he unpacks complex cultural questions with wit, verve and intelligence. Featuring candid interviews with Dan Savage, David Sedaris, Margaret Cho, George Takei, Tim Gunn and many more, DO I SOUND GAY? is a refreshingly frank and thoroughly entertaining look at a taboo subject.
