Openly Gay War Hero Helped Defeat Hitler

Alan Turing Movie Starring Benedict Cumberbatch

Read this article this weekend in the New York Times.  It is a new movie coming out about the war hero Alan Turing and it stars Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbath.  Turing cracked the German’s Enigma code, thus helping to win World War II.  He was also openly gay at a time when it was not excepted.  Despite being essential to the war effort Turing was eventually tried and convicted on charges of indecency.

When Republicans, who now control the House and the Senate, start up with their homophobic nonsense, remember that we might not have even won World War II, if it weren’t for an openly gay man.

  1. I agree the election was a disaster, a victory for fossil fuel interests who are now behind the Curtin of the powerful. I am most angry at the democrats who stood for nothing important.
