Hey all... I am wondering if anyone has experience with attending AA meetings that are specifically for LGBTQ? I just want to know about your experience and if that aspect of AA was helpful. Thanks.
Today is sober day number 10 for me.

Yeah, I found a really comfortable LGBT AA meeting only 30 minutes from home. The people are so real and committed to recovery that I made it my main bread n butter meeting. But that is the only one I found comfortable - LGBT meetings are few and far between (around here) - and two others I've tried (some distance away) do not have the camaraderie this one has. I luvs it.
It's important for me to attend LGBT meetings because there I (and many others) can talk of issues that I would not feel comfortable talking about in genpop. It's good to feel comfortable.
With the GIFT of recovery...The sky's the limit...

Congrats on your sober time.
I have not been to a LGBT AA meeting in years but would suggest to anyone to give it a try. Finding a support group is a big part of AA and the more groups that you experience and try the more people you will meet and the bigger your support group becomes.
