David Thorpe is a filmmaker who went in search of his voice. Specifically, he wanted to know why he and many other gay men ended up with a "gay voice"—one with precise enunciation and sibilant "s" sounds. For his documentary "Do I Sound Gay?" he spoke with his family and speech therapists to better understand how to control and comfortable with his voice.
