Ted (Scott Lowell) is trying to attract interest in a charity event for Angels Over Pittsburgh, a group that brings food to bedridden AIDS sufferers. Emmett (Peter Paige) suggests he get a famous local drag queen, Divina Davore (Tony Award winner Gary Beach) to perform. Devore turns out to be a snooty diva and turns the boys down flat, but she has a change of heart when she finds out that she went to high school with Michael's (Hal Sparks) Uncle Vic (Jack Wetherall) and his mom, Debbie (Sharon Gless). Devore's return to Pittsburgh and Michael's subsequent look into his mother's past lead to some shocking revelations. Justin (Randy Harrison) learns that his father will no longer pay his art school tuition. Justin refuses financial assistance from his mother, Jennifer (Sherry Miller), and from Brian (Gale Harold). Determined to come up with the money on his own, Justin takes a job as a go-go dancer at Babylon, leading him into a shady relationship with the club's sleazy owner, Gary Sapperstein (Tom Barnett). Justin makes plenty of money, but his late hours soon have a negative impact on his class work. Lindsay (Thea Gill) and Mel (Michelle Clunie) have trouble getting their son into an exclusive pre-school, so Lindsay asks Brian to pose as her husband at the admissions interview.
