Trans AA List serve and Zoom Meetings TGAA

Recommended Posts

Charlize

I just wanted the folks here who have or think they may have a drinking problem that there are at this point 4 transgendered Zoom meetings available. The times are Thursday at 9:00 eastern, Saturday at 6:00 eastern and Monday at 7:00 eastern (now Sunday at 8:00 EST as well). I have found them to be wonderful with the trans* spectrum from all around the word in real time meetings. It is also possible to not turn on a camera if one is worried about privacy.

I am not the only person from Trans Pulse who attends. If going to real life straight meeting is difficult or not, these meetings offer a great alternative. To join us please an e-mail to https://oso-aa.org/mailman/listinfo/tggroup_oso-aa.org . You will be sent links to join us. or PM me here at Trans Pulse and i'll help.

Hope to see you there.

Hugs,

Charlize

Might want to see if you can get this pinned?

I agree it's a wonderful opportunity to engage with sisters and brothers from far and wide...

I might go to the one on Saturday, Thursday is definitely out of the question. Besides, my looks have changed. ;)

Our looks are not as important as our desire for sobriety which is good for me.

Hugs,

Our real time face to face on line trans* groups have gotten bigger than Skype can handle so we are using a different program to get together as we did before. The link above will bring you to us if your interested. You can be up with a live picture or not and like any meeting you can share or not depending on how you feel.

Hugs,

Charlize

The online f2f on the internet trans* meeting has outgrown Skype.  We are now meeting on Zoom.  We have also added a new literature meeting on Mondays at 7 eastern.  During the week there is a forum like meeting on line as well.  This is a wonderful opportunity to join an AA meeting if you are isolated or unable for whatever reason to attend in person meetings.  We have both audio and video of each member of the group but if your shy you can also simply be a fly on the wall.  Many of us feel that way at first.  Laughter and happiness can be part of life as well as the serious problem of finding relief from our addiction.

The link to get started if you are interested is:  6 posts above this one.

 

Hugs,

If you think you might have a problem with alcohol you may well find these meetings helpful.  The list serve goes out to over a hundred trans* alcoholics.  Our Zoom meetings  have up to a dozen folks in real time, able to speak and see each other if they wish.  We have everyone in the spectrum represented with one purpose.  To help each other with sobriety.

 

Hugs,

The TGAA Zoom meetings are expanding to add a 4th meeting taking place on Sundays at 8 eastern.  Join us if you have a problem with alcohol or other substances either at the list serve or the Zoom meeting.  You  are not alone in having issues with substances as you are not alone in being Trans*.   I found that i could find sobriety with help and in doing so i found acceptance of myself as well.  Please know there is a way to be sober and enjoy life as well!

 

Hugs,

I have just finished rewriting the text of the TGAA groups listing on the AA's website and thought it might be of interest here.  I've certainly been enjoying the meetings with trans diverse addicts from around the world.  If you think you may have an issue come join in.

 

TG-AA is a group of transgender and gender diverse alcoholics.  We use an email forum with a weekly topic as well as having Zoom meetings 4 days a week for transgender and gender diverse alcoholics.  
Meetings are as follows:   9:00 pm Thursday, topic discussion;  6:00 pm Saturday, Big Book study;  8:00 pm Sunday, speaker;  and 7:00 pm, Monday,  literature study. All Eastern Standard Time.   
We share our experience, strength and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking
To join us please contact us at:   https://oso-aa.orgmailman/listinfo/tggrouposo-aa.org

Hope to see you there soon Robin!  You won't be our only member from Australia.  Hopefully you will ask Ravin for our Zoom info.  

I saw your welcome e mail at the list serve.  Just email Ravin at the address he posted at the bottom of that email if you wish to come to the Zoom meetings. 

 

Hugs,

      @Jandi writing is a creative art that is generally done alone. May I suggest warming up with music you love or look up websites that publish Good news stories and turn off the world outside and enjoy your inside. Not every song I write is good but just the practice is enjoyable. Remember all great writers will say...if you want to be a writer then you have to write...that is how you get better. Perhaps check in on Coursera it is free and wonderful courses to help more knowledge to your ideas. My favorite is Pat Pattison at Berklee he as a great course on poetry and lyric?writing. Although I have written for over 45 years he gave me some concepts I had not heard before and I have added them to my writing tool kit.

      Modesty... Seems to be a common trait here and I love all of you for it.

      My parents think I've been brainwashed into thinking I'm transgender and they think Asperger's caused me to be brainwashed. I haven't said anything to them about how it's more common for people on the autistic spectrum to be transgender because they'll probably interpret that as evidence that those on the autistic spectrum are easily brainwashed. Also, I've noticed a lot of LGB (in addition to trans) people on autism related forums, especially a lot of lesbians.

      I like to write.  Sometimes stories, sometimes poems. Lately being stuck at home by myself I've been kinda depressed, and it's surprisingly hard to get motivated.  That seems weird considering I have lots of time on my hands.  But I've been trying to do better with mixed results.
    • Jandi
      I have also heard that Transfolks have a higher percentage of being dyslexic.   Dyslexia is more than simply mixing up "b" & "d".   (which I only found out lately, and explains a lot about myself).  It can also involve remembering numbers, (like phone numbers - I've had to write mine down at times so I wouldn't forget it) or spelling can be a big problem - just to name a couple.   Just thought I'd mention it.

      Scuba and specifically underwater photography.  If I could live underwater I would. My long term plan is to get to the point where I can spend 6 months a year in Bonaire do it.

      oh and I can even talk nonsense about video games thus combining the two together.
    • MaryMary
      Hi, I'm an expert at both talking nonsense and video games. I can do both of these for an infinite amount of time so my guess is that you are at the right place. Welcome, it's a pleasure meeting you virutally
    • ThatDarnDodo
      Productivity? Never heard of her. 
    • Carolyn Marie
      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sasha.  I won't be much fun to talk video games with, but I can manage some General Nonsense.  😆  Please look around and post where you like, and if you have questions, we're good for that, too.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie
    • Carolyn Marie
      Thank you, Shay.  We have a wonderful team here, and actually, I feel it's more akin to a family.  But its all the members, past and present, who make this place truly special.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      @Robin  You've mentioned that previously.  Thanks for the photo, so cool.  I understand Geddy Lee is a big collector of Negro League Baseball memorabilia.  Neil Young is into train sets. I remember when he joined a group to buy Lionel when they were in trouble years ago.  
    • Bri2020
      WHat an awesome day! Congratulations.

      Thanks for the welcome, Jackie. This seems like a pretty great community so far.
