Alan Touring

I just wanted to link to an interesting post I stumbled across in some of my internet technical wondering:

http://numberedhumanindustries.wordpress.com/2010/02/11/ending-%E2%80%9Cdon%E2%80%99t-ask-don%E2%80%99t-tell%E2%80%9D/

The post itself is worthwhile, its also inspired me to research contemporary and historical GLBT figures outside of the humanities and arts. Any recommendations?

    I actually live on part of the old Bletchley Park site, and I was in an experimental/punk band that composed a song in praise of him 🙂
    Fortunately, it was never recorded.

    There was a campaign last year for an official apology, which we got (yes!)

    There are a number of science and tech people on wikipedia’s list of famous trans people

    such as Sophie (Roger) Wilson, who was the main designer of the BBC Micro computer – a 1980s schools machine, which was the first computer most people born in the UK between 1970 and 1990 ever used.
