About Galano

The Galano Club, Inc. was founded March 1, 1982 and is a registered tax-exempt charitable organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Galano Club, Inc. has no affiliation with Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon or any other 12 Step Program.

The Galano Club’s purpose is to provide a meeting place for 12 step recovery programs primarily for the LBGTQ community that meet in accordance with the 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and to provide facilities for meetings, conferences, and communications between groups and service organizations that are associated with 12-step recovery groups.

Primarily, we offer space where groups may hold meetings. Each group pays rent to the club for use of meeting space. Membership in The Galano Club is independent of membership in any group that uses the club’s facilities for their meetings.

The Galano Club is a community and your membership helps support the clubhouse and its activities for the recovery community.
