Google celebra el 100 cumpleaños de Alan Turing
Para que luego se diga de la España de Franco era radical... Cuando en realidad era la epoca.
, Turing met a man called Arnold Murray outside a cinema in Manchester. After a lunch date, Turing invited Murray to spend the weekend with him at his house, an invitation which Murray accepted although he did not show up. The pair met again in Manchester the following Monday, when Murray agreed to accompany Turing to the latter's house. A few weeks later Murray visited Turing's house again, and apparently spent the night there.
After Murray helped an accomplice to break into his house, Turing reported the crime to the police. During the investigation, Turing acknowledged a sexual relationship with Murray.
Homosexual acts were illegal in the United Kingdom
at that time, and so both were charged with gross indecency under Section 11 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1885.
Turing was given a choice between imprisonment or probation conditional
on his agreement to undergo hormonal treatment designed to reduce libido.
He accepted chemical castration
via injections of stilboestrol, a synthetic oestrogen hormone.
