The Truth About Gay Men and WWII

Now for the truth after the insanity from American Family Association (AFA) and all those fighting the repeal of DADT about how gays actually were an integral part of defeating the Nazis and Hitler.

Charles McCain wrote about Alan Turning who was convicted of “charges of committing acts of gross indecency with another man.”  Which was legalize for saying he was a poof, a Nancy boy, a queer.

This mathematician was the only person able to crack the German code that was so complex that the British called it the Enigma.  Turing had figured out how to crack the code by creating a new machine which had never existed before.  This machine that Turing created is what resulted in the modern computer.  Today, the’ Nobel Prize’ of the computer world is the Turing Award so named to honor Alan Turing as the father of the computer age.

The image is from a outstanding musical about gay men fighting in WWII, Yank.
