New York filmmaker David Thorpe has initiated a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for his documentary Do I Sound Gay? about gay men and their voices.
“I’ve always been self-conscious about sounding gay. It’s one of the main things that gives me away as gay,” Thorpe says. “Three years ago, I decided I’d had enough. I knew that my anxiety came from my internalized homophobia telling me gay equals bad, so sounding gay equals bad.”
Do I Sound Gay? features candid conversations with Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn, Don Lemon, Dan Savage, David Sedaris and George Takei.
