We are pleased to announce that Wendy Montgomery, of Bakersfield, CA, has accepted an appointment to Affirmation’s Board of Directors. Wendy was born and raised in Southern California. She has always been a member of the LDS Church. She and her husband Tom were married in the Los Angeles Temple in 1995, and they have 5 children.
In January of 2012, Wendy and Tom found out that their oldest son (who was 13 years old at the time) was gay. “It has at times been unbearably painful,” says Wendy, “but it has also been an enlightening, spiritual and joyful journey.” Today she has many new LGBT-supportive heroes in the LDS community.
Wendy is a voracious reader, loves history, and is doing everything she knows how to make the LDS Church more welcoming and inclusive of its gay members.
