    No. There is a stereotypical camp speech that is used by a few actors but the vast majority of gay men do not have any speech mannerisms that give any indication of their sexuality.

    Most men who like dressing in women's clothing, transvestites, are straight. Transvestites do not regard themselves as being gay for the most part. Transsexuals are men who consider themselves to be women. They are not necessarily homosexual. Drag Queens are men who dress as women in an outlandish and highly exaggerated way. Mostly they are gay but there are some straights who do drag, it is always a performance.

    Male homosexuality is not about men thinking they are women or being like women or taking a woman's role. Gay men are men and they are attracted to other men. There are no external signs of someone's sexuality. If you want to know, you have to ask them. You can only presume someone is gay if you meet them in a gay bar/club/sauna/etc. They might not be but it is reasonable to presume they are. It is not reasonable to make such presumptions elsewhere.

    No you cannot. Also gay men do not as a rule wear women's clothes.

    Yes. All gay men mince when they walk, talk with a lisp and a lilt, wear flower print dresses and wear garish makeup. In 1940s comedy revues. In the real world, no, of course not.

    No, No, and hell no. Most men (90%) who cross dress are heterosexual.

    No. Not all gay guys are feminine or enjoy women’s clothing.

    Sadly, sometimes, yes.

    Effeminate gay men can't seem to help themselves and give the rest of us a bad name.

    The femmy guys also enjoy wearing women's clothing and pretending they are drag queens.

    Masculine gay men are embarrassed by them and wish they would man up.

    No it isn't true, gay people don't have a distinctive walk or speech pattern. Some gay people like to cross dress, but certainly not all of us; astonishingly enough half the gay people on the planet are female, and some of them love to wear women's clothes

    No. Not all gay men have a feminine walk and not all gay men like to wear women clothes. That's a stereotype and a generalization. Can you tell if a person is straight by the way they talk and if they like to cross-dress?

    No to the first question. Unless they are talking about themselves being gay, most gay guys don't have cartoonish gay lisps. Some non-gay guys do have speech impediments which might sound like a gay lisp.

    Lots of non-gay people like to wear women's clothing, including straight women. Also, they might be a transexual woman, which is not a gay man. So no to the second.
