33 years ago, in the aftermath of hate crimes and anti-gay violence that marked the social struggle for acceptance and tolerance in America following the post-Stonewall years, a handfull of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered members of A.A. and Al-Anon in New York City decided they needed a safe space, a voice, and a community. The came together and formed the Big Apple Roundup, a committee of dozens of individuals who worked together for more than a year to produce New York’s first Roundup. Their stories of losing jobs, being evicted from homes, being shunned by their familes, AND RECOVERING and finding JOY through the 12 steps and the fellowship, have been preserved and protected in the Big Apple Roundup Archives for all these years. And today we are pleased to be able to present them to you. Listen to the Speaker now.
