  • DO I SOUND GAY?
  • Journalist David Thorpe embarks on a hilarious and touching journey, confronting his anxiety about "sounding gay” with comprehensively exploring the linguistic, cultural and historical origins of the stereotype of the gay voice. Enlisting acting coaches, linguists, friends, family, total strangers, and celebrities, he quickly learns that many people — both gay and straight — often wish for a different voice. Drawing upon movie and television clips, the film traces a cultural history of the gay voice which places Thorpe's self-consciousness in a broader context and illuminates the complexity at play.

    A humorous and heartwarming doc where senior citizens learn about computers from teenage mentors and the connections made both on and offline. The film focuses on five individuals ranging in age from 77 to 93.

Patience and a sense of humor are necessary for all parties involved, creating a very interesting, entertaining and meaningful story for the viewer.
