First Things First

If you think you have a problem with drinking, Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) may be able to help.

  • The main A.A. website is here.
  • If you are looking for a local A.A. meeting, you can start here.
  • The officially-recognized service organization for LGBT A.A. members is here.

What is A.A.?

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

What is this website?

This is our A.A. group's website. Our group purpose is to provide an LGBT-identified online A.A. meeting, and to offer information and links to other LGBT-identified meetings in communities anywhere. This site depends on member participation to be of service to the alcoholic who still suffers.

We follow the 12 Steps and the 12 Traditions.

We believe that the promises will always materialize if we work for them.

Join us tonight for our meeting at 10:00 pm Eastern USA time!

  • +1 (732) 352-3437  (which spells "READ LADIES" on your phone's touchpad) is the number to call. No meeting number or password required! Just dial in and you will be connected immediately.
     
    If you need us to call you, or if you need a local number to avoid long distance charges, write to admin@gaymeetings.org and we will set it up for you.
     
  • Our meeting starts every night at:
     
       10 pm Eastern Time
     
         9 pm Central Time

         8 pm Mountain Time

         7 pm Pacific Time

    For other places, this may help.
     
    When you dial in, you may be serenaded by a guitarist until the meeting starts.
     
  • This is a Closed Meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. In support of A.A.'s singleness of purpose, attendance at closed meetings is limited to persons who have a desire to stop drinking. If you think you have a problem with alcohol, you are welcome to attend this meeting. We ask that when discussing our problems, we confine ourselves to those problems as they relate to alcoholism.
     
  • Any problems, write to admin@gaymeetings.org. Include your name and phone number if you want a call back.

Money

The Seventh Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous states, "Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions." If you are a member of A.A. and would like to support this group financially, you can send a PayPal donation to admin@gaymeetings.org and we will receive it. An accounting of our finances can be found at gaymeetings.org/money.

Most groups suggest a donation of $2 per meeting; but if you attend this meeting most nights, over a month that could be a lot of money. So please don't over-do it. Give modestly when you can, if you can. And if you can't, don't worry. Keep coming back. Our group feels that you're more important than the money.

Literature

Our group reads frequently from the books Alcoholics Anonymous and Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. We've found that the least expensive place to buy these books is from the A.A. Online Bookstore. But if you find that purchasing from this source would be a financial hardship, write to admin@gaymeetings.org and we'll work something out for you.
