The Austin Galano Club has reopened. However, the City of Austin and Travis County have entered Stage 5. The club and Lambda Live & Let Live recommend that members wear face masks while inside the building, following the guidance of local and national public health authorities.
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 LGBT community. However, all are welcome, 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 so 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 A.A. membership. We are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; it does not wish to engage in any controversy, and neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
All meetings take place in person and online at the below times.

- Remember that in our fellowship, anonymity is the spiritual principle of all our affairs. During zoom meetings, protect our anonymity by refraining from screenshots and recordings, and ensure you’re in a secure environment where people can share without being heard outside the meeting. If you need proof of attendance, speak with the chairperson at the end of the meeting.
- Zoom also supports text chat, which will be used during certain parts of the meeting to avoid confusion. Like in-person meetings, we ask participants to refrain from crosstalk during the meeting.
- We need volunteers to read “How it Works,” “The 12 Traditions” and “The 9th Step Promises” during each meeting. These will be shared as documents in the room, but can also be found in this online Big Book.
