Remembering the life, work of Jeff Montgomery, Michigan gay rights activist

Jul 20, 2016

Jeff Montgomery was one of Michigan's first leading gay-rights activists. 

A personal tragedy drove him to become a fierce advocate for LGBT rights in Michigan and found the Triangle Foundation, which later became a part of Equality Michigan

Montgomery died this week in Detroit.

Sean Kosofsky is Montgomery's friend and a former staff member of the Triangle Foundation. He is now in New York running the Tyler Clementi Foundation

Kosofsky spoke with us today about Montgomery's life, and about his contributions to LGBT rights in Michigan and across the nation.
