TV’s Kirk Montgomery lays it on the line for GLBT kids

9 News personality Kirk Montgomery adds his voice to the suicide and bullying prevention initiative, “It Gets Better.”

Why’d he do it? He told The Denver Post’s Bill Husted, “For the first time in my television career, I thought I could use my position to really help somebody.”

“Today is a perfect opportunity for all of us to ‘make it better.’ We need to elect people that value and care about the dignity and equality of all Coloradans,” said Brad Clark, executive director of One Colorado.

“Life for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people doesn’t just happen to ‘get better’ – it’s up to each and every one of us to make things better,” Clark said.
