Movie star Ben Affleck will appear alongside his gay cousin in a new ad campaign for Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, reports WENN. The Oscar-winning writer was persuaded to appear in the ads at the urgings of his aunt. The TV commercials, in which Affleck will talk about homosexuality, are expected to air later this year. The campaign will also feature an ad with Cyndi Lauper and her lesbian sister.
