Stonewall is a long established charity which lobbies and campaigns for the rights of lesbian, gay and bisexual people and all the LGBT community. The organisation conducts research and provides a resource and information service for individuals, organisations and employers.
Stonewall is renowned for its campaigning and lobbying. Some major successes include helping achieve the equalisation of the age of consent, lifting the ban on lesbians and gay men serving in the military, securing legislation allowing same-sex couples to adopt and the repeal of Section 28. More recently Stonewall has helped secure civil partnerships and ensured the recent Equality Act protected lesbians and gay men in terms of goods and services.
