Storyline

Approaching middle age, David Thorpe, South Carolina born and bred but who has lived most of his adult life in New York City, laments his single gay status at this stage in his life. In his self-critical view, he blames that single status partly on what he considers his stereotypical gay sounding voice, something that he himself does not like and believes that most gay men do not like in others in wanting partners who are more masculine sounding. David goes to vocal coaches/speech therapists to help him transform his voice into what he considers that more standard sounding nondescript male voice. Concurrently, he speaks to gay celebrities about their voice and what if anything they did to it, and to historians and other experts about how the gay voice came into being, its history and if there is any thought to it being biologically inherent to gay men, or if it truly is a product of environment.

My voice is terrible too, thanks David
26 August 2018 | by csmcmackin73See all my reviews

I am going to get a voice coach. My voice is so important to my work & I have never liked it. David hits on so many reasons for paying attention to how we sound. He touched on the identity of how people sound & how people change the way they sound due to environment & survival. This is the light on human condition to a judgmental society.
