Do I sound gay now playing at the Kendall Square cinema: David Thorpe in Boston for tonight’s shows

David ThorpeEarlier this spring I wrote the post, Gay themed summer movies, which talked about the documentary Do I sound gay? Today David Thorpe’s documentary opened in 14 new cities including Boston, Chicago, Portand, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle & Washington, DC; previously you could only see this film in Atlanta, Los Angeles, NYC and Philadelphia.

Meet writer/director David Thorpe in person today & tomorrow, July 24 & 25 for Q&As after the 7:05pm shows and to introduce the 9:45pm shows! Tickets here.

The documentary confronts Thorpe’s anxiety over sounding “gay” by talking to LGBT icons like Dan Savage and George Takei, and exploring the cultural history of the gay voice in film and television. You can get your tickets to see Do I sound gay? by linking to the Kendall Square cinema website, here.
