Story

Everybody deserves equal human and civil rights, and a life free from fear and discrimination. 

That's why we're doing an absolutely terrifying skydive on 27 September, to raise money for Stonewall in its 25th anniversary year. 

We want to help Stonewall's tireless work to create a better world where being in love is always a joy, and never a life sentence.

  • In 78 countries being gay is still illegal.
  • In 5 countries it carries the death penalty. 
  • In many more countries, gay people have no legal protections from discrimination and violence. 
  • Here in the UK, homophobic bullying remains common in schools, workplaces and places of worship. 
  • Homophobic attitudes remain prevalent in society and many gay people are still compelled to hide their identity.

If you agree that this shouldn't still be happening in 2014, please consider sponsoring our skydive and helping us to reach our joint target of £800.

We are truly petrified to do this and every single pound will help!

Thank you so much!

With massive gratitude,

Shell and Jo

Whilst some may argue LGBT people are now equal in law, Stonewall knows there’s still so much left to do. We need your help changing hearts and minds in order to create a world where all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people can live and love freely without fear of persecution.

Having spent considerable effort teaching you how to tie your shoelaces, cross the road safely etc, I cannot say we are entirely happy about you jumping out of a plane. But we are very proud of you.
