A must watch and share.

Toofab reports: Modern Family’s” Nolan Gould and “Are We There Yet’s” Coy Stewart star as gay teen boyfriends in rapper Logic’s powerful new pro-LGBTQ music video “1-800-273-8255” that dropped Thursday. The video also stars Matthew Modine and Don Cheadle as Gould and Stewart’s fathers, respectively.

The storyline follows a gay, black teenager (Stewart) who goes on an emotional journey when his family, friends and peers discover he’s homosexual and dating a white male (played by “Modern Family’s” Gould). The video showcases Gould’s character’s father catching the duo in bed together, locker room bullying and Stewart’s subsequent thoughts and actions inching towards suicide as he struggles with coming to terms with his sexuality.
