22. Alan Turing

Alan Turing
Go to Sackville Park near to the Gay Village in Manchester. You will find a park with
a commemorative figure of Alan Turing sitting on a bench. He was a mathematician, computing pioneer, and marathon runner in the time of Chariots of Fire.

He worked at Bletchley Park & was pivotal in developing a machine that could find settings for the Enigma Machine. Prosecuted for being gay in 1952, he went through a series of experiments ‘to be cured’ rather than going to prison. He committed suicide in 1954.
