Why do some people 'sound gay' but not others? Why are gay voices a mainstay of pop culture but also a trigger for bullying and harassment? Following a break up with his boyfriend, journalist David Thorpe sets out on a quest to unravel a linguistic mystery…all his life, like many gay men, Thorpe has felt self-conscious about his stereotypically un-macho voice. But what are its origins? And why is there such a stigma attached to 'sounding gay'? As Thorpe consults with everyone from speech therapists to public figures to complete strangers, he unpacks complex cultural questions with wit, verve and intelligence.
