'Modern Family' Stars Push For Australia Marriage Equality

Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson have dipped their toes into the gorgeous waters off Australia's Great Barrier Reef to fight for marriage equality in the country. The Modern Family stars (Cam and Mitch, respectively) joined Australia Marriage Equality for the PSA. 

“It’s a funny video with the serious message that the right of loving same-sex couples to marry is becoming a defining difference between Australia and similar western countries like New Zealand," says Australia Marriage Equality Director Rodney Croome. “We thank Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet for taking the time to make a video that will inspire many Australians to stop waiting and get involved in the marriage equality campaign.”

After filming, the LGBT group reports that Jesse donated $10,000 to the cause. Nice work, Jesse!
