I was rather bugged by the furore in the lead up to the apology for Alan Turing from the Prime Minister. The campaign, to me, stunk of a personality cult. I was vocal in my desire to see an apology for everyone punished for their sexuality (and perhaps that should wait until we get equal rights, huh?).
So why did no one in the media call for this? Now, suddenly, it's hit the radar. Grr... see here and here
I understand the campaign was not started by someone who classes themselves as LGBT, so perhaps that perspective made it difficult to understand that this sort of treatment is not a rare occurrence. But then again surely anyone of a basic level of intelligence should understand that. But maybe I ask too much given that some gay guys nowadays don't even know about the past regressive laws.
