Nick News covers coming out and bullying in time for #spiritday

With Spirit Day fast approaching, Nick News shared the stories of several LGBT teenagers in an episode entitled "Coming Out." Included in the lineup was former Spirit Day Ambassador and anti-bullying advocate, Marcel Neergaard.

Marcel talked to Nick News about coming out to his family, and the bullying that he faced in school from people who were formerly his friends.

"Using who I am as an insult hurt," Marcel told Nick News. "People so much underestimate what words can do."
