offers a safe environment for all recovering people regardless of
their sexual orientation. Since we are secular and consider all
religious or political activities to be strictly personal issues, our
members are generally characterized as free-thinking and tolerant
SOS is based on respect for the individual and not on abstract dogma
or faith. We are concerned with only one issue and that is sobriety.
We have no opinion of sexual matters, it is not our concern as an
organization or an issue among our members. We actively encourage
diversity in opinion and approaches to life and in this context
welcome people whatever their sexual orientation, so long as no harm
is brought purposely to others.
our members are gay, lesbian or bi and attest that they feel more
comfortable inside SOS than in any other recovery grouping. We
actively encourage all members, regardless of their sexual orientation
to meet together in the same groups, in order to share common
experiences and goals of recovery- and this is very successful feature
of SOS today.
However, we do recognize special needs for different groups and should
some members wish to establish a Gay SOS group, Lesbian or Bi SOS,
then we would actively welcome and help them.
Furthermore, the webmaster would like to ask gay and lesbian SOS
members to contribute articles to this and other web sites.
