Some say "it takes a village". At Gay & Sober, we really believe that. An adventure of this scale doesn't happen on its own and it does not revolve around one or two individuals. It's a collective team effort from many talented people from all over the United States. We also have delegates and *volunteers from Canada, Mexico, Ireland, Great Britain, Argentina, Sweden, Japan, and Brazil! 

Our annual activities and especially our Men's Conference and Pride Celebration call for an "all hands on deck" approach from everyone involved. 


Little by slowly, we've created planning and development committees by calling on like minded friends and fellows that are enthusiastic about a convention of this sort. The end result is a carefully curated team of individuals and Area Delegates that bring their own strengths, passions, talent, and know how to the table. Another side effect of this kind of service are closer connections with fellow volunteers and a stronger sense of community.

Every volunteer has one thing in common... they all like to have fun in sobriety!


Would you like to be a part of our growing *team?

If so, please send us a message and someone will reach back out to you.

*We are currently accepting volunteers for the conference weekend. However, please be advised that all volunteers and participants are still required to have tickets and wristbands for entry to all GSM official events. With the exception of scholarships, you will need to register and pay if you intend to come to the conference. 


**To join our service family as an AREA DELEGATE, please send an email here and tell us a little bit about your self and where you live. To be a delegate, all you need is 90 days of continuous sobriety.

An Area Delegate:

- represents Gay & Sober in your local community

- lets others know about our happenings

- serves as a point of contact in case someone needs help (perhaps by bringing them to a meeting)

- provides updates to local meetings for our online meeting directory 

- occasionally helps with our raffles and fundraisers 

- joins us for a conference call on the first Monday of every month

For information on speaking at the nightly big meetings during the conference, please click here.

As a reminder, Gay & Sober or the annual Gay & Sober Men's Conference in New York is in no way associated with the Big Apple Roundup. More information on this can be found at the bottom of our mission page.
