The Queen City Group is a 12-step recovery group based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous. We strive to provide a safe and sober environment for the lesbian or gay alcoholic where she or he can pursue a program of recovery amid our supportive, friendly fellowship. Attendance at the Queen City Group is not restricted to the LGBTQ community.
Below you will find our meeting list with times, descriptions and locations. The Queen City Group meets seven days a week in the greater Cincinnati area. If you are new to recovery, or wondering if AA is right for you, scroll to the bottom of this page for some helpful links.

*Open meetings, or "What is an "open" meeting?"
As the term suggests, meetings of this type are open to alcoholics and their families and to anyone interested in solving a personal drinking problem or helping someone else to solve such a problem.
During the meeting there is usually a period for local A.A. announcements, and a treasurer passes the hat to defray costs of the meeting hall, literature, and incidental expenses. The meeting adjourns, often followed by informal visiting over coffee or other light refreshments.
Guests at A.A. open meetings are reminded that any opinions or interpretations they may hear are solely those of the speaker involved. All members are free to interpret the recovery program in their own terms, but none can speak for the local group or for A.A. as a whole.
*Closed meeting, or "What is a "closed" meeting?"
These meetings are limited to alcoholics and people who have a desire to stop drinking. They provide an opportunity for members to share with one another on problems related to drinking patterns and attempts to achieve stable sobriety. They also permit detailed discussion of various elements in the recovery program.
