Mitch And Cam Evolve Their 'Modern Family' [Spoilers]: VIDEO



On last night's season premiere of Modern Family, Mitch and Cam (arguably the most prominent gay couple on television today) celebrated the end of Prop. 8 by getting engaged. After lots of speculation (as well as some pressure from the ACLU), the Emmy-winning comedy had both characters drop to one knee simultaneously for a dual proposal. As the show enters its fifth season (as well as its first in syndication), Mitch and Cam continue to (sometimes slowly) broaden audiences' exposure to gay relationships on TV.

Jeffrey Richman, one of the show's openly gay writers, tells THR how it went down:

As I started writing, I became unexpectedly emotional. I teared up writing it. I teared up hearing it read. And I completely teared up seeing that moment where they both just say "yes" at the exact same time. That was so moving for me. I felt like, "OK, maybe I got it right because I never cry at weddings." My boyfriend [actor John Benjamin Hickey] always reads the first draft and he called me in tears after he read this one.

This Fall's Must-See LGBT TV: VIDEOS


When you flip on your television this fall, you’ll encounter significantly less LGBT characters than last season. After a record-setting 2012-2013 season in terms on LGBT representation on television, many of last year’s prominent series featuring gay characters -- including Happy Endings, The New Normal, Smash, Partners and Southland -- will not be returning.

Despite those losses, there are still exciting LGBT stories being told on new and returning programs. We’ve collected eight of the most buzzed-about comedies, dramas and reality programs showcasing LGBT personalities this fall.

Fundamentalist Preacher Uses Unintentionally Hilarious Photo For Ebook Cover

Fundamentalist Preacher Doug Seahorne decided to write a book about child-rearing, entitled Bible Principles of Child Discipline (from the book of Proverbs). To grace the cover of his wholesome ebook, he hit up Google Image Search and stumbled across what he felt was the perfect picture to embody the Biblical principles of disciplining one's child, a picture of a loving husband and wife with their two beautiful daughters and one adorable son. That picture was this:


Pastor Seahorne chose Modern Family's dysfunctional Dunphy family, who in addition to being the intellectual property of Disney, are probably the most ironic family he could have chosen this side of the Bundys. The pastor responded on Facebook once he learned that the picture was from "a wicked TV show involving a gay couple!" with a litany of excuses, including that he hasn't had a TV in 35 years and that he assumed results on Google Image Search were not copyrighted. The ebook is no longer available on Amazon, and the Facebook post has either been deleted or blocked, but nothing truly vanishes on the Internet.
