That's really hard to say. I think my voice tone is very deep and masculine, but I think it is also a bit unusual and not what I classify as "totally masculine." But then I am a bit self-conscious about how I sound, look, etc. No one has ever made a negative comment about my voice, so I guess I'll vote no.

No...but lately i've been starting to practice my feminine voice. I don't do that outside the house though.

Probably, but here's no one here can hear it for a judgement call.

Most are not even going to know they have it, much like with all other accents. The only way they'd probably realize it is if someone brought it to their attention.

I can pick up even the most subtle of gay accents. It's quite unique. :lol:

I really don't know, and I know I flame a LOT LESS than most gay guys, but I said yes because I DO think my voice is too feminine, with a bizarre twinge of eastern Nebraska white-trash accent that I picked up from my mother.
We can sit for a while and talk about
The things that bring you down
Like heaven and martini's
And boys that hang around
If if told you my biggest secret
Would you promise me you'd stay?
It isn't what you're thinking
It's simple in a way

I don't have a gay voice per se: my voice sounds very similar to other guys my age. The only "gay" aspect is a slight English accent, which is considered more "gay" than the Canadian.
One thing I noticed was this: my voice dropped relatively late ( 16 ), and before that a lot of people openly asked whether I was gay. After it dropped no-one has. Amazing how people only pick up on the obvious things...

Actually a rather amusing thing happened the other day relating to this: I was taking my first singing lesson and the teacher chose a song written way too high. For some reason when I sing my English accent really comes to the fore and when I sang the line "mother's here" I cracked into falsetto. At the time I thought it was the gay-est sound I've ever made. :lol:

Well, since my voice never changed, I definitely have a feminine voice. I am called ma'am even now when I still go around in guy mode.

My best friend is an expert in spotting "gay voices", she could be sleeping upstairs and a guy comes up on TV, she would be telling me later that a gay guy was on TV ; she says that mine is gay when I am on the phone :shock:

I don't sound gay...... not that there is anything wrong with that. Not even my homophobic brother-in-law suspects I'm gay..... but then again he was astonished when he was told that his favourite singing artist, Elton John, was gay.

If sounding English is considered as sounding gay - well that's a couple of hundred million people who 'sound gay' if you count speakers in the former English colonies. That's just a silly proposition.

I don't know if my voice is gay or not? I know other parts of me are definitely gay. Rovie, what do you think? We have have talked several times. Is my voice gay or just bi-curious?

Paul: Only when you and John get together and decide to recite movie scenes after a few beers. Oh, and when y'all was singin' along with the jukebox at Lafitte's in Galveston, again after a few brews. I think I see a pattern here. There is nothin' in your usual vocal pattern to suggest Christopher Lowell or Liberace; or Ian McKellan, for that matter. :D

As for me - never heard myself on tape so I can't tell. I've been told it's more a whiskey and cigarette baritone but i don't really know.

I don't think so during normal conversation... but I have been called out for it at work when I raise my voice to a point just below yelling. :roll:

I don't think so. I've never been called on it.

I think it would be fun to collect our respective voices in audio files, label them to preserve annonimity, pass them around and vote. :lol:

Ha! I have .wav recordings done for a voicemail system, but ain't nobody gonna hear 'em without calling the right number, and that ain't likely to happen.

I'd be up for that... who should compile?

This is one of the hardest things for me to confess in a medium where really none of you need ever know but here goes....

I think I sound gay-definitely. I guess I'm a bad person for saying this but it's always bugged me-painfully so. My voice is too high and there is something about the vowel "o" that makes me cringe. In fact, I even went so far as to buy some books on the way men and women communicate in an effort to change how I speak. I guess this is a big part of my insecurity in my masculinity. And believe it or not, I think I'm more secure than I used to be! :shock:

With that confession, I don't know if I carry myself in a gay way. I like to think I carry myself in a neutral way. However as this is all about your voices...yes I think I speak and the purse and high heels fly out. Alright, off to hide under a rock now. :wink:
