Modern Family's Ty Burrell Says The Show Has Helped The Gay Rights Movement

Ty Burrell believes that his TV show, the Emmy Award winning comedy Modern Family is 'revolutionary' and that pop culture's depiction of homosexuals is changing the way a lot of Americans view same-sex couples.

From Huffington Post.
Not only did it sweep the Emmy comedy categories this year, but "Modern Family" may have done a little something for the gay rights movement. 
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, "Modern Family" star Ty Burrell opened up about why he thinks the ABC sitcom has been an important part of our culture over the past few years. 
"I have family members that I don’t necessarily need to name, that felt one way [about gay rights] five years ago and feel a different way now," he said. "And I do really think that has something to do ... [with seeing] gay people living the same lives as everybody else. And I think that, sort of weirdly enough, that banality, is revolutionary.

"Just seeing [their characters] Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) dealing with the kid trying to sleep, trying to figure out how to dress them for Halloween, fighting about who’s the breadwinner," Burrell continued. "Everything is, other than a few small things, essentially the same."
