To support the first International Day of LGBTQ+ people in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), join us to celebrate the life of the brilliant Alan Turing and the challenges he faced as a gay man in the field of STEM, with a screening of the critically acclaimed film The Imitation Game.
In 1939, Cambridge mathematician Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) was employed by MI6 to decipher Nazi codes. Turing and his team, which included Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley), successfully cracked Enigma, which cryptanalysts had thought unbreakable. But in 1952 the quiet genius was convicted for homosexuality.
