See what LGBT community leaders are saying about Alan Turing and The Imitation Game below.

 

Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin

“As a community, LGBT people have our own family, our own stories, and our own heroes. Alan Turing is one of those heroes, and few have done more to save lives around the globe. He stood alone, against unimaginable odds.”

 

GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis

The Imitation Game is an incredible film that shows how hugely destructive an anti-LGBT culture can be, and an important historical perspective that preserves LGBT history.”

 

Anderson Cooper, Journalist and Anchor of CNN’s “AC360”

“Incredible story of injustice against a gay genius who cracked Nazi code in WWII saving millions.”

 

Andy Cohen, Host and Executive Producer “Watch What Happens Live”

“There’s no telling what more Alan Turing could’ve done for the world if homophobia didn’t exist. He is one of the great unsung heroes of the Twentieth Century.”

 

Michael Kors, Fashion Designer

“Being different and thinking differently allowed for Alan Turing’s genius to change the world. Unfortunately, being different also ended this genius life way too soon. Imagine if his differences were celebrated, how much more he would have accomplished.”

 

Marc Jacobs, Fashion Designer

“I only wish to see the day when all people use their energy to celebrate others for their differences rather than persecute them for it…Thank you Alan Turing! Think different, INDEED!!!”

 

Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force

“In these days of what feels like rapid progress, Alan Turing’s life reminds us that the struggle for self, for life and love remains one of humanities greatest challenges and accomplishments.”
