“Turing’s homosexuality resulted in a criminal prosecution in 1952, when homosexual acts were still illegal in the United Kingdom. He accepted treatment with female hormones (chemical castration) as an alternative to prison. Turing died in 1954, just over two weeks before his 42nd birthday, from cyanide poisoning. An inquest determined that his death was suicide; his mother and some others believed his death was accidental. On 10 September 2009, following an Internet campaignBritish Prime Minister Gordon Brown made an official public apology on behalf of the British government for “the appalling way he was treated.” As of May 2012, a private member’s bill was put before the House of Lords which would grant Turing a statutory pardon if enacted.[7]>
