Welcome to the AALA Roundup!
Welcome to AALA 2015, our 30th anniversary. How exciting to think of all the people who have trudged this road before us. Looking back 30 years, we can marvel at how far the road has taken the gay, lesbian and transgender movement. Yet we must continue working together in fellowship to go even farther. That is the spirit of this year’s AALA. Our theme is The Broad Highway, which comes from page 75 of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous:
“We pocket our pride and go to it, illuminating every twist of character, every dark cranny of the past. Once we have taken this step, withholding nothing, we are delighted. We can look the world in the eye. We can be alone at perfect peace and ease. Our fears fall from us. We begin to feel the nearness of our Creator. We may have had certain spiritual beliefs, but now we begin to have a spiritual experience. The feeling that the drink problem has disappeared will often come strongly. We feel we are on the Broad Highway, walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe.”
So this year in our new home in downtown Los Angeles we have many wonderful activities, speakers and meetings. We’ll also have lots of fundraisers along the way to help support AALA, create fellowship and carry the message. We look forward to seeing you Memorial Day weekend. May 22-25 2015.
