LGBT Kansans live in one of the country’s most hostile states, but they’ve made dramatic gains in public acceptance. Along the way, they learned lessons that are useful to anyone trying to make change.

She currently oversees digital news and features for KCUR, Kansas City’s NPR affiliate, where she has also covered arts and culture. She spent two decades in the alternative press, including 10 years as editor of The Pitch, where her writers won numerous local, regional and national awards and were published in several national “Best Of” food-, sports- and music-writing anthologies. Janovy grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska; received her bachelor’s degree in English from the University of California at Berkeley and a master’s degree in creative writing from Boston University. She and her wife live in midtown, Kansas City, with two dogs.
