Trans AA Skype or Zoom Meetings

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 3 AA transgendered Skype meetings available. The times are Thursday at 9:00 eastern, Saturday at 6:00 eastern and Monday at 7:00 eastern. I have found them to be wonderful with MTFs and FTMs 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 Laura's who attends. If going to real life straight meeting is difficult these meetings offer a great alternative. To join us please an e-mail to:http://lists.oso-aa.org/mailman/listinfo/tggroup . You will be sent links to join us. or PM me here at Laura's 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.

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

This group has expanded to have a Monday Zoom literature meeting at 7 eastern as well as the 6 pm Sat BB meeting and the Thursday 9 pm topic discussion meeting.

Hope to see you and hear you there or if you wish you can simply monitor without sharing or being visible.

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,

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess

      Thanks for your thoughts and especially this, Laura Beth. Many of us may have faced clues along the way and didn't understand them until much later in life. It wasn't until I came out to myself, with the help of a therapist, that the confusion I faced throughout my life finally made sense. And yes, the future is brighter.   Gwen

      Good morning everyone!❤   Happy Birthday rorylm!🎂 Hope you have a wonderful day!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize

      One of the great advantages of going to a therapist was having an opportunity to remember and share a lifetime of experiences similar to those you describe.  Somehow being open and honest was a step i needed in finding the strength and confidence to follow my path.   Thank you for reminding me of my past as well as sharing your own.   Hugs,   Charlize

      It all gets a bit complicated at times   Here it it a standing joke about not having to see someone's medical records to know their issues, just sit in the reception at the doctors surgery and listen to the receptionist! Not really funny, but it happens a lot.   For me it is a daily thing as I am not planning a namechange etc in the near future, but only occasionally gets too much. Its always going to be easier wth one name and one gender.   Tracy

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."
