Gayle W from Los Angeles California and sober 18 years tells her story with great humor and a big chunk of grace over adversity at the Houston Roundup in Houston Texas on November 27th 1992. LGBTQ

I have 4 versions of this speak and each one of them has really bad audio quality so I was never able to use it, and yesterday I got an email from Andrew R with a copy of it he had ripped from a cassette after hearing it. I ended up using the first 40ish min of his version and the last 10 min from a different version so you will notice a change in tone at about 40 min in and you may need to play with your bass knob a bit but I think youll find its worth it. Thank you Andrew.
