David Sedaris Discusses Not Caring That His Partner Hugh Sounds Gay

Writer David Sedaris has been with his partner Hugh Hamrick for well over two decades, but he admits, “Hugh does not sound like anything I wanted my fantasy boyfriend to sound like.” In Do I Sound Gay? documentarian David Thorpe explores the relationship gay men have with their voices and, consequently, one another. Thorpe is feeling insecure about his voice after a breakup leaves him low, which leads him to interview speech pathologists and gay celebrities, as he does in this exclusive clip featuring David and Hugh. Spoiler alert: Even though Hugh might not have the gruff baritone of a lumberjack, David Sedaris is never going to leave him.
