Queer Sobriety Support aims to offer resources to queer and/or trans folks who are thinking about sobriety, struggling with sobriety, or otherwise looking for sober supports (sober buddies, AA/NA meetings, sober housing, a sense of community, etc.).
Here, we hope that you can…
- ask for and give advice
- find other sober queer and/or trans people to talk to/hang out with
- find AA/NA meetings near you
- look for, create, and promote queer sober events near you
- look for and offer sober housing as well as queer and trans friendly housing
- find books, videos, websites, etc. to help and/or comfort you in your sobriety
- and lots more!
If you have any suggestions on how to make this a better and more accessible resource (re: font, font size, theme, theme colors, tags, management, and beyond), please send them to our ask box.

hey y’all, if you’re in need of support in sobriety and are looking for resources, please check this out! one of our lovely writers, kit, recently created this, and it’s unbelievable that there wasn’t something like this before.
Queers Unsilenced is a collaborative project blog focused on revealing the truths and stories of the voices that have been silenced. It’s written and run by all queer identified students with a multitude of backgrounds and identities, and we will focus on queer identities and intersectionality. We encourage you to join us and share your truths with us by submitting something, or just send us a question!

same anon...I am safe, his threats are empty, but this white baby queer is scared and I wanna comfort her but I can't stand her and I feel like I could help her a lot / was in a similar place years ago but there's no way I could even tolerate her w/o calling her out on her racism first? should i just walk away or is there a way to call someone out on racism in the middle of a traumatic experience/
Good! I’m glad that you are safe. I think its important to remember that we are socialized to prioritize white feelings and concerns, even above our own. So again, you don’t owe her anything. You don’t need to teach her or take care of her, especially if they have said and done fucked up thing.
You have every right to call her out if you want too. She does still need to be accountable for the things that she said. Just cause she is going through a hard time does not mean that she gets a free pass. The question you may wanna yourself is, “Do I have the emotional space and time to deal with this? Is this the best use of my energy?” If this is something that you wanna do, then do it. You may want to also think if you have any mutual friends who could work with and help her.
But you have no obligation if you don’t want too.
