I used to think I had a gay voice. In fact, I obsessed over it so much that I started listening to straight guys just for comparison. I found that about half of the straight guys I know sound "gayer" than me, so I don't worry about it anymore. My voice is monotone and unexpressive but not especially deep.

speaking gay

Postby jeangurl » Mon Jul 23, 2007 6:45 am

i have never been picked up on a gay voice per se but i have been accused of being a pommie (Limey) pufter because i have a relatively educated accent, which in Australia tends to be denigrated by the hoi polloi.
Neither am i a flamer nor walk sissiish even tho inside that is exactly ho i feel perhaps one day i willl let it all out and shock everyone :) :oops:
I have boxed played rugby and work out a lot but i have always been agirly sissie at heart.

Jeangurl I think I know what your saying. At one point in my life I thought I had a gay voice. Geez I hated to hear my recorded voice. In my growth as a person I have come to realize voice range (tenor, baritone, bass) is no real indication of gayness at all. This is what I was confusing with being gay. I now think it's the choice of words and inflection that could be turned into gay. When I say words I don't mean educated words I mean words like sweetie, girlfriend, hun etc, words only a girl would use. These words thrown in with a shriwl or stereotypical lisp. I hope I'm making sense. It's kinda hard to describe in words.
I find it amusing now, the insecurity I once had with my voice, when now I'm often told I have the perfect voice, from my clients, for what I do as a hypnotherapist.

Thank you for your sensitive and sensible comments,like you I dont think I really have a sissy voice (except when putting it on for fun) but when speaking without slang even without the flamer words I am some times accused of having a sissie voice,perhaps I will have to start coming on like a home boy or in Aussie talk a bit of a Larrikin.

not really, ive never been told i sound gay, although what comes out of my mouth when i think about it, or listen to it is often different.
being british cant help, posh accents sound "gayer" even though i dont have an acccent, mine is a mixture of essex, london, cockney, bristol, and americanisation (like, so, omg)etc.

good topic though, i shall think about it
:D cheers :D

I guess since during the few times I have come out to someone they do the, "No - really? Damn!" thing that no, people must not be able to peg me based on the voice. The gay porn tapes in my room, well, that might tip them off. :wink:

Honestly, while I know that there are a certain percentage of gay (and even a few straight) men who pop out of the womb a little on should I say, "the soft side" and will always sound/act gay, I think that a bigger percentage of it is learned - as in, "rubs off based on who you are around".

I'm in metro Atlanta. Huge gay population, and in the Midtown area you tend to find a lot more who fall into what you'd call "the gay stereotype". I have actually known guys who came out late, and decided to start mixing in with this crowd for whatever reasons. Well, you run across this guy a few years later and he's swishing like everyone else. It's not hard to reason out - if you take a guy from Alabama and move him to New York City, and he submerges himself into their culture for years, then run into him years later, he is NOT going to have maintained that deep south drawl like he once had. He may not sound like a native New Yorker either, but he will have picked up some of their accent, their slang, mannerisms, etc. Vice-verca if you move a Northerner to the South, then years later he'll have just a bit of a twang, slower manner of speech, etc. You simply pick up accents if you're around a ton of people who speak in those accents over time - and a stereotypical "gay accent" is no different than any other regional accent.

So basically in a very non politically correct way I'm saying that if you hang out with a bunch of queens, eventually you're going to sound like them to a degree. Whoops (no offense to anyone if that strikes a nerve - just being bluntly honest about my theory). :shock:

It's absolutely true. That's one of many reason why I don't associate with feminine guys.

Vocal types

Postby Learning » Thu Mar 26, 2009 6:57 pm

I think of the stereotypical gay voice as being less supported with air, having more nasal resonance, and often higher in pitch. Sometimes, my voice is more gentle and sometimes it's not. I've found Roger Love's "Vocal Power" course has great tips about support, resonance, and pitch placement for speaking with authority.

As a 18 year old, my voice never got deep its pretty sad.

I've actually been asked if im bi, because my voice doesn't sound gay, but not straight. Ive heard myself on a recording, sound like a kid still, and with a weird accent, but not a gay one? I don't know.

Would need someone to judge, but i can assure my voice is always pissing me off, thats why i don't have a voicemail recording.

I don't have a voicemail on my cell or home phone for that reason too. I always think I hope my voice doesn't sound like that in person. It probably does but it sounds different hearing yourself than on a recording.

Oh well its actually funny i have been told that when i am just normal and chilled out i sound straight, or well manly. Exactly how i sound when i wake up or when im tired. But when i get excited ive been told i sound bi, not exactly gay which i dont know how that works. But i am extremely insecure about my voice. Because i dont have effeminate gestures. I really hope it doesnt sound like that in person.

Good point. Voices reflect how people feel. Being relaxed and confident is a sign of power that shows in the voice. Getting tense makes the pitch go up, the larynx go up, the breathing get shallow, the air support fail, and the throat close off which creates a weaker sound.

Biological Part of Voice

Postby Learning » Mon Jun 14, 2010 12:36 pm

Some things about how a voice works come from technique. But some things about a voice are biological. Here is a video of someone named Tuck who has made big changes in appearance by taking testosterone, surgery, and working out. After testosterone, Tuck's voice sounds similar to a young guy's voice.
