VIDEO: Bryan Cranston, Ansel Elgort, & others speak out as LGBT allies

This week on GLAAD's video series, GLAAD: All Access, host Claire Pires covered the opening night of the musical "Finding Neverland" on Broadway.

Based on the Academy Award-winning Miramax motion picture by David Magee, and the play "The May Who Was Peter Pan" by Allan Knee, "Finding Neverland" follows the relationship between playwright J.M. Barrie and the family that inspired "Peter Pan," or "The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up." 

"We hope [Finding Neverland] will be inspiring for audiences, transform people, give people hope, give people the courage to be who they are through this one story that we're so deeply connected to," director Diane Paulus told Pires.

On the red carpet, Pires asked attendees about the show and why they are allies to the LGBT community. Bryan Cranston, Ansel Elgort, Derek Hough, Laura Benanti, and more gave honest answers about why they are allies, and why they believe in acceptance for LGBT people. Stars also voiced their support for GLAAD's #GotYourBack campaign, which empowers LGBT people and their allies to speak out for acceptance.
