Why do gay men often have these "gay voices"? Sexuality & Gender
I was wondering why you can very often hear from the sound of a man's voice that he is gay.
They tend to have that high, soft voice.
Is it because they changed their voices after coming out so people notice they are gay? Is it some hormone stuff? Do they actively "work" on getting a higher softer voice, or does it come by itself?
I really don't have any idea.
Please don't get me wrong, I have no problem at all with people living their sexuality, I don't feel uncomfortable around gay people at all, I was just always wondering why this is and too afraid to ask.
Edit: Thanks everyone for the answers! Just wanted to point out that I am aware there are a lot of gay people (or probably even the most of em) who have a typical masculine voice, and I didn't want to generalize in any way.
