Stonewall is a UK lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights charity, founded in 1989 by activists campaigning against Section or Clause 28, and named after the Stonewall riots in New York City in 1969.
"We're here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they're not alone. We believe 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."

Participating employers of Stonewall's UK Workplace Equality Index "demonstrate their work in 8 areas of employment policy and practice. Staff from across the organisation also complete an anonymous survey about their experiences of diversity and inclusion at work. Organisations then receive their scores, enabling them to understand what’s going well and where they need to focus their efforts, as well as see how they’ve performed in comparison with their sector and region."
