Should Cameron and Mitchell Get Hitched?
The ACLU has started a petition drive calling on Modern Family to marry off its famous gay couple. "America Wants to See Cam & Mitch Get Hitched," declares its new website, Modern Family Wedding. The site features a groom-and-groom cake topper that bears a certain resemblance to the two actors who play the beloved gay dads, Cameron and Mitchell.
Actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson plays Mitchell on the show, and the Advocate cover man tweeted a photo of the ACLU's campaign. "Love this!" he wrote. "Thank you ACLU! Maybe once Prop 8 is overturned!"
The fictional duo live in California, where real-world laws make it illegal for same-sex couples to get married. But a case challenging the Prop. 8 law is now under consideration by the U.S. Supreme Court, which is expected to rule in June on whether the law stands.
Maybe "Cam & Mitch" will be among the flood of couples that take advantage of marriage equality if the law is overturned.
