Watch: The Classic PBS ¿Qué Pasa, U.S.A.? – "Is Joe Gay?" Episode – Back2Stonewall Saturday Night Feature

¿Qué Pasa, U.S.A.? is America’s first bilingual situation comedy, which ran from 1977-1980 and the first sitcom to be produced for PBS.. The program explored the trials and tribulations faced by the Peñas, a Cuban-American family living in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood, as they struggled to cope with a new country. Along the way the sitcom tackled pressing social issues such as homophobia, addiction, women’s liberation, and sexual freedom.

The “Is Joe Gay?” Episode was filmed in 1980 and is as relevant today as it was then.
