Leroy started in media 8 years ago by co founding Proud Times Magazine, which in less than a year was recognized by local and national companies. Kurt had a major role in getting interviews with Cyndi Lauper and George Takei during his time at Proud Times. After 3 years with Proud Times Leroy stepped down and became the wizard behind the curtain, the brain behind the forehead, and the proud producer of the number one growing show on KYRS OUTSpokane. Joining the OUTSpoken crew in their first year, he helped to elevate OUTSpoken to the next level, being key in securing such national guests as Marc Solomon from Freedom to Marry, Ross Murray with GLAAD, and entertainers such as Jane Lynch, William Shatner, Margaret Cho, and even the great Lily Tomlin.

With his extensive 30 year background as an artist and painter, Leroy turned his talents to media. His experience in marketing and managing of different online media outlets through the years have brought him ready to support and grow this amazing LGBTQ magazine Proud Times. After 5 years OUTSpoken left the air and re-branded the hosts making The Martini Lounge a very fun and popular celebrity based podcast. Leroy looks forward to many more years of accomplishments with his focus now on producing Proud Times.
