NEW YORK — 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 (played by Jessie Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (played by Eric Stonestreet), fathers of an adopted child and one of three couples at the heart of the show.
The ACLU says it is appealing to the fictional family to draw more attention to the real issue as it awaits Supreme Court decisions on two important marriage equality cases. Supporters are invited to “RSVP” to the wedding online.
The ACLU plans to deliver the online “guest list” to the show's producers but said it had not yet contacted the show.
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."
Love this!Thank you ACLU! Maybe once Prop 8 is overturned! instagram.com/p/ZV9NMHQEp6/— Jesse Tyler Ferguson (@jessetyler) May 15, 2013
