  • LGBTQ+

    We wholeheartedly welcome all people of any sexual identity or orientation.

    Sex Addicts Anonymous offers a safe place and a message of hope and recovery also for sex addicts in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer + (LGBTQ+) communities.

    SAA is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other in order to find freedom from addictive sexual behaviour and help others recover from sex addiction. Hence SAA is not a place to find sexual partners.

    Our programme is based on the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous, though we are not affiliated with AA or any other organisation.

    Our fellowship is open to all people, regardless of age, race, religion, ethnic background, marital status, sexuality, gender identity or occupation. We welcome members of any sexual identity, orientation and gender, whether they are gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual, transgendered, questioning or of any other identity.

    Many of our sexual behaviours produced negative consequences. These behaviours are not gender specific and may cross lines of sexual orientation. In the recent decades of sexual liberation, we may have been encouraged to engage in some activities in order to foster “Gay Positive” self-esteem. Yet for some of us, these behaviours ultimately backfired and left us discouraged, isolated and demoralised.

    What do I do now?

    SAA Literature

    Many LGBTQ+ sex addicts start their recovery by reading the pamphlet 'SAA and the Lesbian / Gay / Bisexual / Transgender Sex Addict' and attending SAA recovery meetings.

    Check out our wider programme literature, which can be accessed for free online or ordered through the SAA website Shop.

    Attend a meeting

    SAA holds several LGBTQ+ focused, online, in person and telephone meetings each week.

    You may also wish to look at the full lists of all UK meetings, because LGBTQ+ sex addicts are welcome in all SAA meetings!
