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. We're here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, in the UK and abroad, know they're not alone.


Stonewall believes we're stronger united, so we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better. We have laid deep foundations across Britain -- in some of our greatest institutions -- so our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential. We’re here to support those who can’t yet be themselves.


But our work is not finished yet. Not until everyone feels free to be who they are, wherever they are.
