Hundreds hit the streets of Brighton for Stonewall 25th anniversary celebration


Over 700 walkers took part in our 10k Walk, supported by American Express on Sunday 11 May, 11th annual Equality Walk has so far raised over £65,000 to tackle homophobic abuse.


Radio 1Xtra DJ Adele Roberts and Great British Bake Off’s John Whaite hosted this year’s walk which included live entertainment and a picnic in the Royal Pavilion Gardens for the hundreds of families and fundraising teams.


Research conducted by Stonewall shows that 99 per cent of young people reg


ularly hear phrases like ‘that’s so gay’ or ‘you’re so gay’ in school. These insults can have a devastating impact on young people’s self-esteem and confidence. Stonewall’s campaign,

Gay: Let’s Get the Meaning Straight
, is helping schools and young people tackle this abuse and put a stop to homophobic language. Over £65,000 has already been raised, with more expected to come in over the coming weeks to reach our £75,000 target.
