ACLU: Time for ‘Modern Family’ gay couple to wed

  • May 15, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) – The ACLU is lobbying for the gay couple on “Modern Family” to get married. ACLU Action started a campaign to urge the show’s producers to write a wedding episode for Mitchell and Cameron.

The ACLU says it is appealing to the fictional family to draw more attention to the real issue as it awaits Supreme Court decisions. Supporters are invited to “RSVP” to the wedding online.

The ACLU plans to deliver the online “guest list” to the show’s producers.

ABC referred questions to 20th Century Fox Studios, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Show creator Steven Levitan tweeted a link to the campaign with a simple “Wow.” Jessie Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell, tweeted: “Love this! Thank you ACLU! Maybe once Prop 8 is overturned!”
