Bay Area SAA Welcome

For Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning & Intersex (GLBTQQI) Members

If you have a desire to stop addictive sexual behavior of any type, you are welcome here.

Our fellowship is open to women and men, regardless of age, race, religion, ethnic background, marital status, or occupation. We welcome members of any sexual identity or orientation, whether they are gay, straight, bisexual, or transgendered.
Sex Addicts Anonymous, pp. 1-2

While all of our Bay Area meetings try to be safe places for all members, GLBTQQI newcomers and members may feel varying degrees of comfort and safety at different meetings. Therefore, in addition to all our mixed meetings in the Bay Area, we have a meeting in San Francisco with a special focus on the needs of our gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning members. This meeting is held Fridays at 6:30 PM. Please see the schedule for location information. There are also GLBTQQI telemeetings listed in the schedule.

We suggest that you attend at least 6 meetings before deciding if SAA is for you. Listen to others. Talk to members you relate to. Meetings typically have pamphlets, brochures and books which can also help you on this journey.

From our International Service Organization

Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender members and newcomers may contact GLBT Outreach for information at GLBT@saa-recovery.org.

Attention All Meetings - Call to action

Elect A Group Service Representatives (GSR) For Your Meeting. Each meeting should have a registered a primary and alternate GSR with the ISO. ​What is a GSR? GSR’s meet at least once a year, with the other GSR’s in their area to discuss items to be voted on for the annual conference. Each area will send a GSR to represent them at the meeting. The Bay Area has 3 areas (South Bay, SF and East Bay). So that means the Bay Area will be represented by 3 GSRs at the upcoming October Conference. ​Have your meeting elect one and register them at https://www.saa-iso.org/mbrs/gsr/index.php.
