Watch Wilson Cruz and GLAAD's Corey Johnson Discuss Spirit Day

Actor Wilson Cruz and GLAAD's Corey Johnson were on MSNBC this afternoon to discuss the importance of showing support for LGBT young people.

After the discussion, MSNBC Anchor Thomas Roberts ended the segment with a heartfelt plea for that support to continue year-round and to extend beyond just wearing a certain color.
