Buzzy TIFF Documentary ‘Do I Sound Gay?’ Will Open DOC NYC

'Do I Sound Gay?' Opens DOC NYC

Featuring LGBT mascots Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn, Dan Savage and George Takei, among others, “Do I Sound Gay?” explores the link between sexuality and speech, and the all the anxiety and cultural baggage that come with “the gay voice.”

Produced by Howard Gertler (“Shortbus,” Oscar nominee “How to Survive a Plague”), “Do I Sound Gay?” was hailed by Toronto doc guru Thom Powers as “a winning and sympathetic guide who doesn’t shy away from confronting taboos and vulnerabilities that often go unexpressed.”

The November 13 DOC NYC presentation marks the film’s US premiere. The full lineup for this IFC-produced festival, which promises a slate of over 125 films, arrives October 15.
