The Boring Little Girls Club acknowledges that many sober and recovery spaces are primarily comprised of white, able bodied, non-queer folks, and can feel unwelcoming or unsafe for LGBTQ+ folks, BIPOC folks and Disabled folks.
We are actively working to make our events, meetings, hangouts and leadership not only inclusive and affirming of these identities, but ones that centre the needs and experiences of some of the most marginalized in our community.
The intention of the Inclusion & Diversity Squad is to make the BLGC a space where LGBTQ+, BIPoC, and Disabled folks feel safe and seen in sobriety.
Are you sober* or actively trying to manage your relationship with drugs and/or alcohol?
Do you identify as someone who wouldn’t typically find safety, acceptance or community in mainstream sober or recovery spaces**?
We want to hear your story!
Here are the guidelines:
*We acknowledge that there is no wrong way to be sober, however the BLGC is dedicated to providing a drug, alcohol, and harassment-free experience for its members
** This call is open to folks of all identities, but we do aim to highlight the voices of those who identify as part of the BIPoC, LGBTQ+, Sex Work or Disability Communities.
Submissions are open until March 12th.
If you would like to be involved and are: sober, sober curious, or would like to participate in more sober events and community, and identify as any part of the BIPOC, LGBTQ+ or Disabled communities, please email our Inclusion & Diversity Liaison, Miranda (she/her) at email@example.com
