Watch Do I Sound Gay? - Alternative Versions.
The film explores the whole issue of identity although it focuses on
how someone speaks.
The way we speak, whether with southern or British or Boston or bland
newscaster accent or gay intonations, does have practical implications.
Should it matter? Probably not, but we don't live in an idealistic
Obviously it will matter in a negative way a whole lot if you're a high
school student in Beaver Dump Idaho, whereas if you live in the Village
in NY and work in a gallery it may be both acceptable and an asset to
sound gay-ly intellectual.
Should a Black man from the south be ashamed of sounding like a Black
man from the south? Of course not. But if he wants to get a job as an
announcer on CNN and stand a realistic chance of rising in the ranks,
he'll probably have to modify the way he sounds. We each have to decide
what matter most to us and whether changing something about ourselves
But this website isn't really about the validity of the supposed issue
being addressed, but about how it's been presented. In this case, I
think it was handled superbly.
The issue is addressed honestly in terms of influences in childhood,
celebrities who we've regarded as exemplifying all the stereotypical
behaviors of gay men or situational experiences that we've lived
through ... not solely in terms of speech, but in the whole
constellation of behaviors that define us and those that will likely
elicit certain reactions from those around us.
By the end of the film we can see that the issue of how we sound is
simply one aspect of our identity, both as we think of ourselves and
how others may think of us. Is our reasoning behind wanting to change
idealistic, realistic or symptomatic of something deeper? Some people
are certain that plastic surgery or a hair piece will transform them
into something they are not. Maybe cosmetic changes will increase our
sense of self-esteem. Maybe we'll realize that superficialities are
meaningless and that we're grasping at straws.
I think this film explored the whole issue of self-identity very well
in terms of the influences, both internal and external, and the need
for each of us to come to terms with who we are and what really
Well worth watching to better understand ourselves and what things we
focus on that are irrelevant to who we really are.
