“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, lesbian, straight, bisexual, or transgender.”
Welcome to Sex Addicts Anonymous! This page contains information which may be of interest to LGBT members or potential members of SAA.
SAA is open to members of any gender identity or sexual orientation, though specific meetings may have restrictions such as men-only or women-only. However, if you wish to find a meeting that is commonly attended by members of the LGBT community, you can or contact your local group or intergroup representative.
Various types of telemeetings are held every day of the week. These are listed in the meeting search results. Telemeetings are excellent venues to meet other members and create a support group and/or sponsorship. LGBT telemeetings include the Sunday meeting, Monday meeting, and Tuesday meeting. (Days are subject to change.)
If you are able to obtain information on additional SAA meetings which are explicitly welcoming of gender minorities or sexual orientations, please so we can increase our referral list.
The SAA green book, Sex Addicts Anonymous, is available online in a read-only format, through the store as a downloadable ebook, and as a traditional paperback book, available at the store and at many meetings.
For detailed information regarding SAA and LGBT sex addicts, read the pamphlet “SAA and the Lesbian/ Gay / Bisexual / Transgender Sex Addict,” available in read-only format and at the store.
All other SAA publications are available in read-only format and at the store.
Recordings from past conventions are available in MP3 format for downloading in the audio section of the store.
