[Serious] No disrespect intended, genuinely curious if this is learned or natural, how is the stereotypical "gay man" voice taken on?

Straight dude here and I'm going to make a wildly unsubstantiated speculation.

I've had two lives in two industries and the most accomplished people I've known in both have been gay men.

Common characteristics I've noticed is that they tend to be considerably more meticulous and detail oriented than their straight counterparts while also being creative and expressive in a way that straight guys never are.

It's like being gay unlocks these personality traits that straight guys suppress because God forbid it might make them less masculine.

Then I think that maybe the voice you reference may be a natural product of these unlocked characteristics.
