"Oy Vey, My Son Is Gay" is the story of the Hirsch's, a Jewish family living in the North Shore of Long Island, where every Friday night Shirley Hirsch (Lainie Kazan) invites another "perfect" girl for Shabbat dinner in hopes that her son, Nelson (John Lloyd Young), will marry a nice Jewish girl. When Shirley and Martin (Saul Rubinek) once again set him up on a date, Nelson reveals that he is already seeing someone. Shirley and Martin are thrilled and can't wait to meet the lucky lady.
In an effort to find out who her son is dating, Shirley stops by Nelson's apartment and is greeted by Angelo Ferraro, Nelson's live-in boyfriend. To keep things a secret, Angelo introduces himself as Nelson's interior decorator. Sybil also meets the neighbor Sybil who she believes is Nelson's girlfriend. She is concerned Sybil is not Jewish but she decides if Nelson is happy, she is happy. At a family wedding, Angelo brings Nelson as his guest, and midway through the ceremony, Nelson breaks the big news to his parents. Distraught, Shirley and Martin blame one another for Nelson's choice of partner. Immediately, they start to seek answers and remedies to their situation and finally meet with Angelo's parents to find a solution.
