The film leaves plenty of space for humor, between the musings of Thorpe's own friends in New York, and of course, a collection of interviews with the likes of Margaret Cho, George Takei, Dan Savage, and David Sedaris.

An interesting and earnest first glimpse at an intriguing question; hopefully it will inspire others to take up the mantle.

Thorpe would really have benefited from expanding his lines of enquiry further, and drawing the focus more thoroughly away from himself... As such he turns "Do I Sound Gay?" into a vanity project.
November 6, 2015
The tone is light and hopeful throughout, while allowing for the possibility of more searching investigation on the viewer's part.
November 1, 2015
A cheerful, highly personal investigation into queer cultural identity ...
October 30, 2015
The breezy and humorous tone doesn't disguise the fact that Thorpe's film is both intimate and quietly courageous.
October 30, 2015
A peppy but profound documentary exploration of self-projection and self-image.
October 29, 2015
Do I Sound Gay? humorously tackles the thus-far unaired and touchy question of whether certain intonations and speech patterns mark out some gay men the second they say hello.
October 29, 2015
American writer-director David Thorpe turns the camera - or more importantly the microphone - on himself to create this engaging, lively documentary about gay identity.
August 21, 2015
The basic question in his movie's title is easily answered, the more complex underlying questions necessarily harder. And this is nothing if not a conversation starter.

[G]ay male audiences especially may find a lot to take from this entertaining documentary. That's if they can get over their fears to watch it in the first place.
August 12, 2015
"Do I Sound Gay?" isn't profound, but Thorpe's investigation into self-esteem and public personas touches on a few universal truths about identity.
July 31, 2015
Very personal docu explores gay stereotypes, self discovery.
July 30, 2015
It's an interesting film, consistently entertaining, a mile wide and an inch deep.
July 30, 2015
As with many such informal documentaries on social issues, the results are hit-or-miss, though Thorpe's conversational tone is ingratiating.
July 26, 2015
There's nothing here that makes it a must-see. And gay or straight, you can't like the sound of that.
July 24, 2015
There are enough amusing observations and anecdotes to make the film diverting. Thorpe's own adventure in speech therapy... looks suspiciously like something a documentary filmmaker would do to give his movie a through-line.
July 24, 2015
Surprisingly entertaining, highly informative and honest.
July 24, 2015
The movie feels padded out just to get to a 75-minute running time. But there's food for thought here.
July 23, 2015
Lighthearted but slyly provocative ...
