Lambda Center Houston

1980 Convention

In July 1980, Lambda Center Houston sponsored a hospitality suite at the Seventh A.A. International Convention held in New Orleans. Our rooms quickly became the place to be. The hotel ran out of coffee. The hotel gave us a ballroom at no extra charge because we had so many impromptu meetings, with so many people sitting on the floor and spilling over into the lobby. Gay people from all over the worldundefinedEurope, Africa, Australiaundefinedkept telling us how much they envied us for starting a place where we could share openly and be the people we are. Just as the seeds had been planted for our own gay center, there is no telling how many of these people went home and pioneered recovery for their own communities.
