My name is Wesly Dickson and I have been in recovery for 5 months. Since being in recovery, I have started a cleaning business, opened the only Gay meeting in Colorado Springs, and started school as well. When I was at my lowest I didn’t know who I was or if I wanted to go on with my life. On top of this, I also started losing my hair. Today, by being a part of recovery, I have created a safe space for the gay members of AA to share and feel comfortable.
