Stonewall stands for lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, questioning and ace (LGBTQ+) people everywhere. It imagines a world where all LGBTQ+ people are free to be themselves and can live their lives to the full. Stonewall is part of a vibrant global movement for change made up of LGBTQ+ people, its allies, families and friends. Since day one, it has fought for freedom, for equity and for potential.
Over the last 30 years, Stonewall has helped create transformative change in the lives of LGBTQ+ people in the UK. Today, they have equal rights to love, marry and have children, and their lives, families and relationships are represented as part of the national curriculum in most of the UK.
Stonewall’s campaigns drive positive change in public attitudes and public policy. It ensures LGBTQ+ people can thrive throughout their lives by building deep, sustained change programmes with the institutions that have the biggest impact on them, whether learning, working, praying or playing sport.
It makes sure that the world hears and learns from LGBTQ+ communities, and its work is grounded in evidence and expertise. And it is committed to empowering people to create change in their own communities.
