Image from the film Do I Sound Gay?
What shapes the way people speak—their mannerisms, inflection, and vocabulary? Is there such a thing as a “gay voice”? Why are some people perceived as sounding gay but not others? Why are gay voices a mainstay of pop culture but also a trigger for bullying and harassment? Do I Sound Gay? explores these questions and more and includes revealing interviews with speech and language experts as well as Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn, Dan Savage, David Sedaris, and George Takei. This screening is sponsored by the GLBT Student Support Services (2K DCP Presentation)
