Stonewall Season, supported by Visa, is a week of events right across Britain, run by you.

Whatever you want to do, big or small, Stonewall Season is the time to Come Out For LGBT and hold your own event for equality this October.

During the last Stonewall Season, thousands of LGBT people came together, alongside our allies, and made a big noise for equality. More than 80 different events took place across 22 different towns and cities to celebrate LGBT life and culture: and in 2017 together we will make it bigger than ever.

What your support will do

By hosting your own Stonewall Season event, you can campaign for equality, increase awareness and change hearts and minds in your community. These aren’t just words – the impact you have will be crucial.

You can also have a big impact by raising vital funds for Stonewall as part of your event. Even if it’s a small contribution, you can still make a big difference.

means we can be there to answer a call from a young LGBT person through our free information service
can send five packs to teachers around Britain, to help give them the skills to tackle homophobic, biphobic, and transphobic bullying in their school
will allow us to develop new programmes to reach into new and diverse communities, and support LGBT people we can't currently reach
could fund an LGBT role model to visit schools for a whole year, tackling negative attitudes head on and helping young people to accept LGBT people without exception
would allow us to bring international activists to the UK, exchanging knowledge and sharing the most effective campaigning tactics to help improve the lives of LGBT people around the world

“When I first got involved with Stonewall I was homeless, lonely and had recently failed an attempt at suicide. Being honest about my sexuality had backfired and I had lost my home, my family, everything I owned. I had nothing… Stonewall showed me there was a future, that there was hope for people like me.
I choose to fundraise for Stonewall because it's my way of paying forward the support I received to the next generation of LGBT youth, and it’s my way of saying thank you for the great work they continue to do supporting all LGBT equality.”
