Wendy Montgomery aka “Mama Dragon” is a member of the Mormon Church. She lives in Chandler, Arizona and has a teenage son who is gay.

As a Mormon mother of a gay son, Montgomery says that her primary focus is keeping LGBTQ kids alive.  She has dedicated her life to supporting these children and their moms in and out of the Mormon Church.

Wendy’s son is her driving motivation in her fight against the discriminatory practices towards the LGBTQ community. She believes that statewide nondiscrimination protections for all people is a “no-brainer” and does not understand why they have yet to be passed in Arizona.
