Biography

Janie Burns was born in Nyssa, Oregon in 1955. She joined the military before the ruling of Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell. Currently, Burns is not active in the LGBT community, but is supportive of their efforts. Instead, she focuses her time and attention on food issues such as hunger and local food movements. She now runs a farm and sells produce at the local farmer’s market. Growing up in an era of Title IX, Burns is aware that change comes slowly. She is interested more in legal rights such as insurance and property transfer more than marriage.
