The kids from ABC's comedy hit Modern
Family and cast members Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ty Burrell
appear in a new PSA for GLSEN.
The Gay, Lesbian, and Straight
Education Network (GLSEN), which works to combat anti-gay behavior
and bias in schools, recruited members of the ABC comedy hit to help
pitch its Safe Space Campaign, which aims to place a GLSEN Safe Space
Kit in every middle and high school in the country.
In the video released Wednesday,
Ferguson, who is openly gay, says he was bullied so badly as a teen
that he was forced to move to another school.
Also appearing in the PSA are three of
the Modern Family kids: Ariel Winter, Rico Rodriguez and Nolan
“A Safe Space is a place where nobody
judges you,” Gould says.
“Where you're safe from bullying or
anything that you think is bad,” Rodriguez adds.
“Please visit SafeSpaceKit.com,”
Burrell says. “Help us put a Safe Space Kit in every school in
America.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
