Alan Turing Memorial

The Alan Turing Memorial, situated in the Sackville Park in Manchester, England, is in memory of Alan Turing, a father of modern computing. Turing committed suicide in 1954 after being prosecuted by the police because of his (then illegal) homosexuality. As such he is as much a gay icon as an icon of computing, and it is no coincidence that this memorial is situated near Canal Street, Manchester's gay village. He is sitting on a bench situated in a central position in the park.
