Episode Summary

EDIT
It's Because I'm Gay, Right?
AIRED:

Justin's mother sadly informs him that his father has decided not to pay for his school anymore. Brian offers to pay for Justin's school, but he refuses to take any more help from Brian saying he already owes him his life. Justin applies for a job dancing at Babylon. He finds that the tips are not quite as good as he was hoping for. The owner of Babylon tells him he might be able to work his way up in six months to dancing on the bar, or Justin could move right up by performing certain favors for him. Justin decides to put out in order to get the job. Brian is upset when Justin returns home, he knows.

Ted is trying to throw a benefit for Angels Over Pittsburgh a charity that cooks meals for people with AIDS. The drag queen Devina Devor they want to run the benefit refuses initially to sign on, but after Vic realizes he went to school with him. Soon after Michael learns that Debbie dated him in High School. Michael begins to suspect something after he recognizes Danny Devor (the drag queen). Tempers flair when Michael realizes he looks exactly like Danny.

Gus is rejected from an upscale pre-school. Melanie believes its because they're discriminating against her and Lindsay for being lesbians. Brian agrees to pose as Lindsay's husband in order to try again. The rouse seems to go well, until Lindsay gets a call telling her that the last spot in the school was given to a student with same sex parents, pretty much throwing her theory out the window.

Deb goes to see Danny who expresses a great deal of upset at learning he has a son and never knew. Michael meets his real father, for the first time. Danny initially denies he is his father, and then changes his story to suggest that his father is anything he believes he is. Michael returns home and Deb and him share a tender moment of reconciliation as Michael announces his father was John Michael Novotony, KIA in Vietnam, just as he had always been told.
