Register now to join Stonewall in Equality Walk on 8th May

The goal of Stonewall’s Equality Walk is to fundraise £40,000 to send role models into schools to share their personal stories with thousands of students and teachers. Why is this important? Being an LGBT child or teenager is not easy, and coming out in a mainly heterosexual world is even more difficult, especially in school, when being a little bit different can totally isolate a person.

Stonewall’s Young Leaders programme have already sent 50 LGBT role models to visit schools and inspire young people. Their next project is to send even more role models all around the UK.

Stonewall receives no core government funding, therefore it’s very important to the organisation to get as many people together as they can. The 10k fundraising challenge takes place in Brighton on 8th May, and will open with a Garden Party at the Royal Pavilion at noon, with live music, food and children’s entertainment until 6pm.

The walk itself begins at 2pm and is 10K, but there will also be a shorter family-friendly 3k version.

By signing up to the Equality Walk today, you’ll help Stonewall raise crucial funds needed to stamp out homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.

Register here and walk for equality.
