Our Education history
Stonewall was founded on 24 May 1989, one year to the day since Section 28 became law.
Section 28 was a piece of legislation that banned the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ by schools and councils across most of the UK, and led to a total suppression of LGBTQ+ identities in schools.
We’ve spent more than 30 years working towards a world where all children and young people have access to an LGBTQ-inclusive education.
We have travelled a path from Section 28, to every child in most of the UK learning about our lives, families and relationships as part of the national curriculum. We can't repeat history.
I now feel better prepared to deal with issues in a structured and knowledgeable way.
