Organisation type: 

Stonewall was founded in 1989 by a small group of people who had been active in the struggle against Section 28 of the Local Government Act. Section 28 was an offensive piece of legislation designed to prevent the so-called 'promotion' of homosexuality in schools.

Stonewall work to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people know they're not alone and to support and campaign for their rights by raising awareness and fighting for LGBTQ+ justice and equality. They campaign and lobby government to change laws that do not ensure equality for LGBT people and partner with organisations that help them to create positive change.
