Tom Montgomery

tommontgomeryTOM MONTGOMERY is an active member of the LDS Church who has recently traveled the road from going door-to-door in support of Prop 8 in California to having a great love for the LGBT Mormon community. He says that his single qualification to be in this esteemed company of authors is the privilege of being the father of a wonderful gay son, while his wife would probably note that he has an annoying sense of hope, optimism and blind faith that the Savior is pulling some mighty strings in our day. He has no political or activist agendas other than to be 100% supportive of the health and well being of LGBT Mormon youth and finding a place within the LDS Church for them. A poem he wrote after his son came out in 2012 sums up his views of how he (and he believes the Savior) views gay youth today.

    Hi Tom,
    I know your main approach is towards the LDS church but I want you to be aware that this same thing happens in many other churches. Kids are kicked out or forced into “treatment.” Even if you and Wendy has not been supportive It’s hard to say for sure if your son would have carried through with his thoughts of leaving this world. Life would have been very rough for him had you not come around.
    I guess I mainly wanted to say “Thanks” to you and Wendy for being good parents.
    Tom in Nebraska
