Y12SR: Yoga of 12 Step Recovery
Traditionally, the safe spaces for Queer people have been bars and establishments that enabled drinking and substance use.
Queer Kentucky is offering a weekly Queer Sober meetup and beginner yoga practice that encompasses a 12-Step Program. We want to provide a safe space for sober/sober curious Queer people that allows open conversation and body positivity.
Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) offers a mind and body approach using both the mind and the body for relapse prevention. Using the cognitive tools of the 12-steps and the somatic experience of yoga, Y12SR assists people to develop body awareness, to learn to feel what’s going on in their bodies, and to self-regulate.
All LGBTQIA.. are welcomed. We will not turn anyone away.

Queer Kentucky partners with many community organizations by utilizing our combined missions for the greater good.
The Steam Exchange is a community arts organization based in the Smoketown neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky where people of all ages and socioeconomic levels will have access to tools and training to produce creative works. Queer Kentucky works with this organization for our promotional apparel.
The mission of Steam Exchange is to facilitate passion-driven learning experiences where individuals explore the arts through creative play and production. We also use the arts as a platform for young people to engage with concepts in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in innovative ways (STEAM). We aim to foster a sense of community, pride and ownership in the Smoketown neighborhood and to encourage community-based creative entrepreneurship by connecting people with the skills and facilities to develop quality projects.
The Kentuckiana Aids Alliance unites local non-profit agencies to provide a unique system of support for those affected by HIV/AIDS. We serve 19 counties in and around Metro Louisville. QKY has begun working with them by providing them condoms to distribute at their testing and marketing events.
The mission is to advocate for those with HIV/AIDS and unite and empower the local HIV/AIDS service organizations that serve them. KAA honors those who have gone before through education, celebration and remembrance. And through their signature event, the Louisville AIDS Walk, they rally support and raise funds for those affected by HIV/AIDS across Metro Louisville and Southern Indiana.
