Since its the last 2 days of Pride month I thought a couple of LGBTQ speaks might be in order.

This is a panel discussion meeting at the 2015 International Convention of AA in Atlanta 7/4/2015

Topic: Lesbians/Gays in A.A. - Gay Alcoholic or Alcoholic Who Happens to be Gay

The first speaker is Heywood who got sober in 1966 followed by Gina B then Ron from Gerogia, and after that a few people from the floor.

Part 1: Lessons from AA History

Part 2: Q&A - On-going Surrender - How to Create a Problem

Part 3: Humility / Q&A (the Q parts of the Q&A are a bit hard to hear & I have pulled down the volume on some of the answer parts of this, I have balanced it as best I can but, be ready on the volume button, this part is all over the volume map!)

Bill W speaking at the 34th. anniversary in NY. 1969, followed a very brief speak at the 5th. International in Miami FL. July 1970

I have aggressively modified the audio quality of this recording, it was very poor to start with. The audio quality from begining to end also varied wildly, the sound wave looked like 3 different recordings.

I removed a nasty hum and a good amount of background noise, adjusted the levels and on some of the applause sections decreased the punishingly harsh volume, same thing on a couple of sections of organ music (it was painful).

There are a few sections where it is difficult to hear what Bill is saying.

Dr. Bob's last major talk in Detroit, MI. Dec. 1948, this had a pretty nasty hum in the background, I managed to get most of that out. Considering the year it was recorded, once the hum was removed its a pretty good recording, it ends a little abruptly.

Tomorrow: Bill W

Frank S, one of the first 100 members of AA, 44 years sober at the time of this speak. No info about where or when this was recorded.

It is an older recording and I removed as much background noise as I could and ran this through a number of filters trying to improve the sound, it sounds a little fuzzy and has some popping but it is much improved.
