Stonewall was founded in 1989, and since then has been at the forefront of unprecedented social and legal advancement for LGB people living in Britain. In 2015 we extended our remit to campaign for trans equality.
Stonewall has worked alongside other LGBT groups and individuals for changes in law which include equal age of consent, protection from discrimination at work, the repeal the offensive and pernicious Section 28 and, in 2013, securing the right for same sex couples to marry.
It is easy to forget how much has changed for LGBT people over the last three decades, and what the impact has been.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Stonewall’s video ‘LGBT Voices’ aims to capture the experience of LGBT people who have lived through these changes. It reflects on how far we have progressed, in terms of rights and attitude towards LGBT people, as well as the work still to be done.
We want to ensure these voices and stories are not lost or forgotten.
