First Things First
If you think you have a problem with drinking, Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) may be able to help.
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 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!
Other resources for online meetings
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
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 email@example.com and we'll work something out for you.
