The programme will focus on the gay equality movement since 1989 and will chronicle and celebrate the accomplishments of key individuals, historic events and legislative changes.
The two year project will involve a number of activities around the country, volunteering opportunities and an oral history project to celebrate the older lesbian, gay and bisexual community.
Commenting on the award, James Taylor Stonewall’s Head of Policy said: ‘We are thrilled to have the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund to ensure the voices and contributions of all those involved in the gay equality movement since 1989 are not lost or forgotten.’
In March Stonewall launched a new website to mark its 25th anniversary. The site features a historical timeline of key moments in the fight for equality and can be found at: www.stonewall25.org.uk
