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