WEL­COME

Pride Life Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Wel­come to the win­ter is­sue of Pride Life in which we cel­e­brate the life of gay math­e­ma­ti­cian and code breaker Alan Tur­ing, now the sub­ject of a new biopic fea­tur­ing our cover star Benedict Cumberbatch. Thank­fully we’ve come a long way since Tur­ing was con­victed of gross in­de­cency just for lov­ing another man, but with­out this gay ge­nius the Sec­ond World War would have car­ried on for a cou­ple more years, and com­put­ers as we know them today prob­a­bly wouldn’t ex­ist. In this is­sue we also ex­am­ine how the world would look with­out the achieve­ments of other gay men and women down the ages. When Tur­ing was alive be­ing gay was a crime, but now not only are we le­gal ( in the UK at least) we have equal mar­riage and so we’re cel­e­brat­ing with the low­down on some of the hot spots to go for your honeymoon. Have a great fes­tive sea­son, and look out for the next is­sue of Pride Life in Fe­bru­ary when – be­cause you asked for it – we will start be­ing pub­lished bi­monthly.
