Katey Sagal Joins Americans for Marriage Equality Campaign
BY JULIE BOLCER SEPTEMBER 26 2012
The actress appears in a new video for Americans for Marriage Equality, the public engagement effort from the Human Rights Campaign featuring prominent spokespeople from the worlds of politics, entertainment and sports.
In the new spot, Sagal, a wife and mother, says itâ€™s â€œabsolutely crazyâ€ that most states deny same-sex couples the right to marry.
â€œItâ€™s absolutely crazy to me that most states are willingly harming families by denying gay and lesbian couples the right to marry,â€ she says. â€œIt just makes no sense.â€
Sagal rose to fame in the 1980s for her role as Peg Bundy in the long-running Fox sitcom. She won a Golden Globe last year for her work on the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy. Sagalâ€™s Married â€¦With Children co-star Ed Oâ€™Neill currently portrays Jay Pritchett, the father of Jesse Tyler Fergusonâ€™s character Mitchell Pritchett, on ABCâ€™s Modern Family.
