Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson Sells Bow Ties for Marriage Equality

Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett, not only plays an openly homosexual character on TV, he is also openly gay himself.  The ability for same-sex couples to enjoy government sanctioned and recognized marriage is very important to him.  That’s why during his engagement to his husband, Justin Mikita, he worked to promote and support the Marriage Equality movement.

He and Mikita also like bow ties, and they started Tie the Knot in order to raise money for the cause.  It is a partnership with The Tie Bar, an online store that sells men’s neckwear.  As people buy Tie the Knot items, the proceeds go towards marriage rights for same sex couples.

If you’re a fan of Ferguson, Modern Family, and/or bow ties and care about equality, supporting this cause is a great way to check all of those boxes.
