The episode fans of Modern Family gay couple Cameron and Mitchell have been clamoring for airs Wednesday.

According to gay entertainment website, ABC will air The Kiss this week.

Over 13,000 fans of the show at the Facebook page Let Cam & Mitchell Kiss On Modern Family have been clamoring for an onscreen kiss between gay couple Cameron (played by Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (played by openly gay Jesse Tyler Ferguson) since the show's May 5 episode titled Airport 2010, in which Cameron and Mitchell were relegated to a hug after they argued while heterosexual couple Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) kissed and made up.

Modern Family co-creator Steven Levitan has said that the controversy “bothered” producers who had planed a public display of affection episode all along.

“We've had an episode planed for a long time that dealt with that subject of [affection between the gay characters],” Levitan said.

Despite Ferguson's attempt to tamp down expectations – “Don't expect a Gone With the Wind type of thing.” – has already labeled the episode a “classic.”

“What I most appreciated is that rather than just having Cameron and Mitchell simply kiss and be done with it in order to satisfy critics, the show explores the issues involved, especially how many gay men are not comfortable with public displays of affection,” the website wrote. “Well, that just makes this 'Kiss' all the sweeter.”
