Gay Pride is a wonderful time to take a step back and reflect on how our lives have changed since Stonewall 50 years ago. Our incredible community has obtained rights that previous generations would never imagine, and we still have so much more progress to make! Thankfully, Men’s Social Network has a fantastic Gay Pride Flickathon 2019 to keep us on the path to equality!

This maverick British genius was one of the most important scientists ever, yet few people have heard his name, know his story, or understand his legacy. Instead of receiving accolades, Turing faced terrible persecution. In 1962, the British Government forced him to undergo chemical castration as punishment for his homosexuality. In despair, Turing committed suicide. He was only 41 years old.
