For arguably one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th century, the man who effectively ended World War II, the father of modern computing, one of the most scorned and ill-treated men by the British Government because of his sexuality, I offer you this photo on the hundredth anniversary of his birth:
Brilliance should never again be shamed….
And if you don’t know anything about Alan Turing you should. Look him up. Now.

I’m in Manchester, about 10 minutes walk from Sackville Gardens where his decorated sculpture looks out over the city’s HIV memorial beacon and Canal Street, the heart of the gay scene. Delighted to see our national gay hero celebrated here.
Here’s his centenary year website http://www.turingcentenary.eu/
