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. Producer/Director Evgeny Afineevsky and a celebrity cast member will be present for both events.
The movie demonstrates how two conservative, religious families—one Jewish, one Roman Catholic—come to terms with their sons “coming-out” and marriage equality.
A portion of the film’s proceeds are being donated to Basic Rights Oregon.
