The plain "Gay Voice" thread reminded me of something I've wondered about. Am thinking, for example, of the late John Ritter, who apparently was straight (??) and whose voice always pinged bigtime to me, and, as another example, a doctor I have who is married with kids, who has the gayest voice I've ever heard. Of course he could be gay. I'm in no position to know...but I'm curious what you experts think. I mean, most people have no idea how they sound to other people.
Can a straight man have gay voice?

I wonder if we have the same doctor, OP. Major case of gay voice. And from what I know of his wife, family, and life circumstances, this doesn't seem like a person who would feel the need to be closeted.

My doc's ofice is in the San Fernando Valley. Another thing that makes me think he is straight is that his major avocation is surfing--not a notoriously "gay" activity.

A guy can have semi-gay voice and still be straight as an arrow. Take Tebow and Lautner for example.

If they are from Haiti yes. Otherwise no, they are secretly gay.

I just thought Mayor Bloomberg has a Boston area accent, kind of like Baba Wawa. (He's not a native New Yorker, natch).

Yes, my de facto business partner screams "homosexual" every time he opens his mouth. He was the first person I ever met in a business situation that I was "sure" was gay. But he's not -- I've known him and his wife and kids for 20 years now.
I don't really "hear" the voice anymore, but clients do -- they assume he's gay and I'm straight.

It is strange in the south. I swear, 1/2 of the men in professional jobs (not the good ole boys) have at least some gay voice and tend to favor extremely neat appearances (i.e. well coordinated outfits with perfect hair and nails). It strikes me as gay. But most are married to junior league types. They cannot all be closeted... can they?

Sure OP. Take Tom Selleck, for example. Well......maybe not.

Yes, and it's becoming more common. With guys under 30, it's often impossible to tell if they are gay or straight.

I don't think so. If they say they're straight, they're lying if they speak in gay voice.

R11, I always thought the Southern drawl sounded, well, gay. It's the slow, gentle way of talking, I guess.

Of course they can have a gay voice, even it they don't speak with a gay accent.
Adam Levine is a perfect example.

most urban German men have total gay voice, a voice that says, "stop That! Stop that NOW! or I'll have a hissy-fit!"

I'm a Southerner, and I agree with the poster who said that the wealthier, higher class men in the South often have that accent that is associated with "gay". It is sort of a softer way of talking and the way they end each sentence. I am a redneck hillbilly and I don't have it. There is a TV preacher out of Dallas, named Marcus Lamb, and I was sure that he was a closeted homosexual, expecting a scandal at any time. When the scandal happened, he had been having a longterm affair with a woman on his staff. I don't know what to think now, but he is very (that word we can't write without it being changed to childish epithet posted by a bigoted fool).

Yes. I know a straight guy who went to the Columbus School of Art & Design. Looked like a gay Kenny Loggins. Gay supportive/friendly, but totally heterosexual. With all the stereotypical gay mannerisms, lisp and vocal affectations, etc. He was not in the closet or in denial. He was just an effeminate gay-acting straight guy.

What a dumb question.
There is such a thing as a "gay sounding" voice, but not only gay men have it.
One of the reasons that non sexual gays say certain men or women "ping" is because of the sound or timbre or inflection of their voices. Therefore Angie Harmon and Ryan Gosling must be gay. OK. But they are not.
I have a deep resonant Italian accented speaking voice, a bit thuggish. My dick is gay.
Attuned gaydar perceives things more subtle than the sound of the voice.
There are a lot of unfortunate voices in this world, and they are spread pretty evenly around.

I think I'm listening to a straight man with gay voice speaking right now. He has exceptional gay voice and is quite feminine but he talks about women and girls he likes. He's African-American. If I heard him on the phone, I would immediately think he was gay but apparently...not? Hmmm....I don't think he has a girlfriend, just talks about them.

One of my doctors is an Italian born physician with the most high nasal faggy voice imaginable. He is a nice man who is married to a beautiful woman to whom he is obviously very devoted and has a handful of beautiful children. I do not believe he is gay, bisexual nor a closet case but his voice is the pits.
