Famed mathematician Alan Turing is the inventor of the technology that allowed computers to be possible, and is considered the creator of computers because of this. Every computer in existence has used his models and tech to exist. Unfortunately, he lived in a time where being homosexual was illegal and after a conviction against him for having relations with another man, he was subjected to horrendous conversion therapy and later committed suicide.
Alan Turing, the man who broke the enigma code during WWII, is estimated to have shortened the war by over two years, and to have saved over 14 million lives. He was later charged for his homosexuality and was forced to undergo chemical castration.
