2015-09-16_1311The Lambda Live and Let Live group of Alcoholics Anonymous is not affiliated with Austin Galano Club in accordance with the 6th tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Our Group:

Since 1976, the primary purpose of the fellowship of the Lambda / Live & Let Live group has been to stay sober and help other alcoholics stay sober. We describe our group as “LGBT sensitive” because a large portion of our membership comes from the lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender community. ALL are welcome, however, and the only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership, we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

  • VOTING Group Conscience Meeting December 30th, 2018—12:15 PM AFTER the Sunday meeting, we will have a VOTING GROUP CONSCIENCE MEETING (discussion and voting if necessary). A motion has been made to approach Galano Board about returning to a system of keeping chairs in place between meetings. The goal is to provide a set welcoming environment for visitors and newcomers in sobriety to know there is a ready space for a meeting to take place, and not wonder if they are at an incorrect location.
