We gave it a B+

Fresh off a breakup, writer-director David Thorpe embarks on a quest to butch up his vocal cords—and, in turn, unpacks decades of gay-identity baggage within the larger community in this engaging doc. There’s perhaps a bit too much Thorpe and too little time with the array of compelling voices—including Tim Gunn, Margaret Cho, George Takei, and standout David Sedaris—but the film sheds light on self-imposed homophobia and questions of nature versus nurture without sacrificing its essential sense of humor. And how can you knock a movie that gives some play to Wayland Flowers and Madame? B+
