Three stories dealing with homosexuality in America from the 1950s to the present in the same small town of Homer, Connecticut. Vogel's "A Friend of Dorothy" finds Dorothy (Murphy) returning home after being dishonorably discharged from the Navy after being caught at a gay bar. McNally's "Mr. Roberts" focuses on the 70s and confused high school senior Toby Anderson (Thomas). Toby reaches out for some understanding from his closeted French teacher (Weber), only to be rejected. Fierstein's "Andy and Amos" takes place in 2000, with Amos (Le Gros) having the jitters over his commitment ceremony to lover Andy (Airlie). But it's his conservative dad Ira (Asner) who turns out to be an unexpected booster.
