A cheerful, highly personal investigation into queer cultural identity, Do I Sound Gay? begins with US film-maker David Thorpe guiltily confessing that he’s never been comfortable with the inflections of his voice. He asks assorted friends, experts, and entertainers for their take on the meaning and origins of what we think of as the modern “gay voice”, while warily taking a course of speech training to learn to “code-switch, but volitionally” (I’m not sure what it means, but it involves him walking around New York muttering “tilapia, tilapia”).
Doors will open at 6:30 PM, giving our volunteers time to set up equipment and refreshments...your help would be appreciated. This is also a great time to catch up with friends while grabbing a beverage and some popcorn from our free "concession."
The film will begin at 7:00 PM, with time afterward for a brief discussion of the topic.
