It Gets Better: Kirk Montgomery

My buddy Kirk Montgomery of Denver's KUSA-Channel 9 has added his voice to Dan Savage's It Gets Better project in honor of the recent anti-gay bullying suicides. The video also shouts out suicide prevention resources like the amazing Rainbow Alley as well as an organization I wasn't familiar with called Second Wind. Kirk's awesome and I'm sure his message will provide many young gays with the encouragement they need to know that it does, indeed, get better. Thanks, Kirk!

Home By Dark Panel Series: OUT in the Spotlight featuring Kirk Montgomery, Chris Parente, Sen. Pat Steadman, and Mary Celeste

Four local celebrities - Kirk Montgomery, Judge Mary Celeste, Chris Parente, and Senator Pat Steadman - discuss being openly gay in the public eye in the next installment of the Home By Dark Panel Series taking place this Friday, January 22 at 7 p.m.

9NEWS Entertainment Reporter Kirk Montgomery's interest in entertainment started at an early age when he acted, sang and danced in high school. Kirk also worked on a number of television shows in the late 1980's and has the dubious distinction of being Pauly Shore's body double in the really bad horror movie "Phantom of the Mall: Eric's Revenge." Kirk won the Emmy in 2003 and again in 2005.

Channel 2 Morning Feature Reporter Chris Parente recently sat in for Regis Philbin on an episode of "Live! with Regis and Kelly." Chris has 13 years on-air experience, and his work as a journalist has earned him regional Emmies for news reporting. Chris graduated with honors from Indiana University, with degrees in both Journalism and Theatre.

Colorado State Senator Pat Steadman (D) represents the 31st senate district, which covers downtown and north-central Denver and portions and Adams County. He was a co-founder of a non-profit organization that lead the successful lawsuit all the way to the United States Supreme Court, ending in the landmark case of Romer v. Evans which declared Amendment 2 unconstitutional and established the first significant court precedent protecting the equal rights of GLBT Americans. PAt was appointed by Mayor Hickenlooper to the Denver Women's Commission, the Denver GLBT Commission, and currently chairs the Advisory Board for Denver's Agency for Human Rights and Community Relations.

The Honorable Mary A. Celeste is currently serving as the Presiding Judge of the Denver County Court. She also serves as an adjunct professor at the DU College of Law. Prior to her appointment to the bench, Judge Celeste was in private practice in Denver from 1985 to 2000. She received her J.D. in 1983 from California Western School of Law, where she was the editor in chief of the California Western International Law Journal. She has been involved in numerous civic activities, including Denver Alternatives to Sentencing Sub-Committee, Career Service Authority, Denver Foundation Focus Committee, and Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce Small Business Advisory Council, among others.
