What is the gay accent called? legitimate question. it exists. we've all heard it. does it have a name?

Some guys speak in an effeminate way, but I've known straight guys who do this and gay guys who speak plain ( if there is such a thing ). I think the old adage about not judging a book by its cover applies.
