With groundbreaking theories and innovative work in the fields of computing, mathematics and science, Alan Turing’s ingenuity and intellect remains revered within public and academic circles. Estimated to have saved millions of lives by shortening the war, his codebreaking logic applied during the Second World War along with fellow codebreakers serves as an act of intellectual heroism. In recent years, Turing has become a figurehead for gay rights following his posthumous pardon from Her Majesty The Queen in 2013, which has since led to further pardons to gay men and created what’s become known as ‘Turing’s Law’.
