Ron Smyth, Movie Star

Parts of an interview with Ron Smyth will be appearing in an upcoming documentary called
'Do I Sound Gay?'. The film - also featuring George Takei, David Sedaris, Margaret Cho, Dan
Savage, and more - is a thorough investigation of what makes for a prototypical gay voice, and how that interacts with societal homophobia. 'Do I Sound Gay?' is currently entering post-production
The finished film might well be a good resource for classes in sociolinguistics/sociophonetics, gender and sexuality studies, and so on. If you'd like to know more about it before its release, check out the
trailer <> on the Kickstarter page. Watch for Ron and our own phonetics
