Temporary Online Meetings During COVID-19 Outbreak:

Due to the temporary closure of Austin Galano Club, LLLL has implemented online meetings.  As of 3/29/2020 we have moved our online meetings to Zoom.  Please click HERE to join the password protected Zoom meeting through your browser, or use room: 158-970-132 Please reach out to Bryce C to get the password if you need it (208.640.1680).  Meetings follow our usual schedule listed beneath this section.

Information about the online meetings:

  • Need help using Zoom?  Check out this tutorial page for help.  Zoom can be downloaded as an app on your computer or mobile device, or it can be used through your browser.
  • Meeting format will vary slightly from regular LLLL meetings.  Dontations can be made to LLLL via Venmo at @lambdaaustin.  You can also use this link to make one-time or recurring donations to LLLL, Lambda Big Book Fund, and the Austin Galano Club.
  • Chips will be mailed to you by Bryce C!  Get his info from the moderator during one of the meetings if you’re celebrating a length of sobriety!
  • The name you submit upon logging into the room will be visible to everyone, so please do not use your full name if you wish to remain anonymous.
  • This room supports video and audio.  You will need to grant access permission for both camera and microphone to be seen and heard.  Please MUTE your microphone when you enter the room until you are called upon to speak so that we can all hear the speaker.  Remember to re-mute after you finish sharing!
  • To share, please click the “Raise Handbutton under “participants”, and the moderator will call on you.  Once you have been called, please click the button again to lower your hand.
  • Remember that in our fellowship, anonymity is the spiritual principle of all our affairs.  During this time of online meetings please protect our anonymity by refraining from screenshots and recordings, and ensure that you’re in a secure environment where people can share without being heard outside the meeting.  If you need proof of attendance please speak with the chairperson at the end of the meeting.
  • This room also supports text chat, which will be utilized during certain parts of the meeting to avoid confusion.  Just as in our normal meetings, we ask that participants refrain from chatting during the meeting except when asked to by the chair.
  • We need volunteers to read “how it works” “the 12 traditions” and “the 9th step promises” so please join early to volunteer!  These will be shared as documents in the room, but can also be found in this online Big Book.
  • Want to chair an online meeting?  Please choose a day of the week for the the month here.
  • Thank you for your patience and participation while we adjust to this new meeting platform!

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 “LGBTQ+ affirming” 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.

Announcements:

  • The Austin Galano Club board met on April 29th, 2020 to discuss the reopening of the state, and decided that the club will remain closed until further notice.  Read their entire statement at austingalano.org
  • At our next group conscience (May 31st) we will be voting on payment decisions concerning rent and AA service structure, script language for online meetings, as well as a new service co-chair.  If you would like to participate, or take on the service co-chair position, please join us!
  • We are now accepting online donations using the Venmo app!  Donations can be made to @lambdaaustin.
  • Austin Galano Club has amended their donation page to include donations directly to each group.  You can make donations to LLLL and the Lambda Big Book Fund here.
  • To support newcomers, LLLL has created a fund for big books that will be signed and given to newcomers in meetings. In this case, a newcomer is anyone at their first meeting without a big book of their own.  This fund, like our group, will be self-supporting through a separate donation.  Donations can be made at the Galano coffee bar to the “Lambda Big Book Fund“.  If you are able, please consider making a donation so we can provide big books to newcomers!
  • If you would like to make a financial contribution directly to Hill Country Intergroup (AA), LL&LL group and/or the Lambda Big Book Fund, you can now make those via cash or card at the Galano Coffee Bar.  Donations can also be made to LLLL via Venmo at @lambdaaustin.
