it was “the worst time to be queer because you are not being ignored you are actively searched for and persecuted” said John D’Emilio a professor of gay and lesbian studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago “The nice thing about the movie is that it is calling attention to this bit of history that people dont know anything about” MORE: The price of genius In Britainwhere America’s own sodomy laws originatedthe story begins in 1533 during the reign of Henry the VIII That year the Buggery Act made male sex a capital offense in Britain punishable by death usually by hanging That remained the law until 1861 when the sentence was changed from death to prison usually with hard labor In 1885 the law was broadened to criminalize “gross indecency” a vague catch-all term used to prosecute anything considered to be deviant sexual behavior outside of sodomy mostly between men In 1895 the playwright Oscar Wilde was convicted of gross indecency and sentenced to two years of prison and hard labor about which he penned a poem called “The Balad of Reading Gaol” During Alan Turing’s life public concern over the possibility that homosexuals serving in the military or aiding in the war effort could be blackmailed by enemies intensified the stigma of homosexuality in Britain After Turing was convicted in 1952 the British government took away his security clearance Turing was exposed after he reported a petty theft to the police involving his lover Their relationship was discovered by the police through his reporting of the crime He pleaded guilty and opted for hormone treatments known as chemical castration instead of prison time He tragically killed himself with cyanide in 1954 The 1950s was the beginning of the end for Britain’s laws against homosexual sex as the prosecution of prominent people stoked a public backlash against the laws In 1954 a well known journalist Peter Wildeblood was convicted of homosexual acts with two prominent and wealthy men Lord Montagu and Michael Pitt-Rivers in a public trial that resulted in prison time for all of the men and public opposition to laws against homosexual sex The trial lead to the creation of the Wolfenden committee of government representatives ministers educators and psychiatrists which in 1957 published a report recommending the discontinuation of laws against homosexuality Benedict Cumberbatch Roles

University Challenge Picturehouse 1 of 10 Advertisement The report eventually led to the 1967 Sexual Offenses Act which ended the criminalization of homosexual sex between consenting men over the age of 21 in Britain and Wales In 1994 the age was lowered to 18 and in 2003 it was lowered to 16 the same age for consenting heterosexual sex The US history is slightly different from Britain’s The fervent prosecution of gay sex didn’t start to happen in earnest until the very period during which Turing lived The US had anti-sodomy laws inherited from the English settlers but it wasn’t until the late 1930s 40s and 50s during a period coinciding with the World Wars and a strong strain of Christian morality that police in the US made it a priority to enforce laws against homosexuals As in England concerns that homosexuals could be blackmailed by Communist spiesan idea popularized by Senator Joe McCarthydrove some of the fervor against homosexuals during that period In the USmore so than in Britain it seemsthe period was marked by increased police enforcement of the laws Police officers went undercover in public parks where homosexuals went to meet each other for sexual encounters in order to uncover them It was a period of fear for homosexuals in America unparalleled before or since “This is the height of what I call the homosexual terror in America” said William Eskridge a professor at Yale Law School and the author of Dishonorable Passions: Sodomy Laws in America MORE: TIME reviews The Imitation Game During this same period Eskridge said states began to pass laws that allowed courts to institutionalize gay people indefinitely in mental institutions for having “psychotic personalities” where were experimented on lobotomized and given shock therapy As was the case with Turing the prosecution of gays also denied the US some very bright minds who but for their homosexuality might have been allowed to contribute more to society In the late 1950’s Frank Kameny an astronomer with a PhD from Harvard was kicked out of the Army Map Service and barred from serving in theUS government because he was a homosexual “One of geniuses of 20th century the father of modern computers who helped win World War II who was a lovely person was destroyed by the anti homosexual terror” Eskridge said of Turing Meet Benedict Cumberbatch’s Fiancée Sophie Hunter Hunter

Select/Getty Images 1 of 8 Advertisement Contact us at editors@timecomI’ve had the privilege of following Apple as a professional industry analyst since 1981 During those 36 years I’ve learned a lot about Apples way of thinking and how its products impact the market often becoming rapid mainstream phenomena that push the industry to adopt new standards helping grow and diversify the PC and consumer electronics business A good example of this is when Apple put a 35-inch floppy disk drive in its very first Mac at the now iconic desktop computer’s launch in January 1984 The PC industry had rallied around 5¼-inch floppy disks as the de facto medium for storing data But Apple cofounder Steve Jobs and his team understood that the hardshell case surrounding 35-inch floppies was more durableand more importantly small enough to help them reduce the Mac’s physical size making it seem almost svelte when measured against comparably bulky IBM-style PCs In two years the PC industry had moved to 35-inch floppy disks Then in 1989 when Apple was under the leadership of John Sculley the company began to focus on making the Mac a multimedia computer By adding a CD-ROM drive Apple delivered a much larger portable storage medium for playback of content that could include text images and full-motion video The Mac became the first bona fide multimedia computer and by 1992 all PCs included either CD-ROM drives or ones capable of supporting rewritable discs (Apple was ironically late to the rewritable CD party failing to add such a drive to the Mac until 2001) Apple continued to drive the PC industry forward with its candy-colored iMacs in 1998 The highly personable computers folded the monitor and desktop portions into a single case begetting today’s one-stop desktops that we’ve taken to calling all-in-ones Read more: Why Social Media Users Should Never Lower Their Guard Of course Apple’s most revolutionary product remains the iPhone Cupertino’s iconic smartphone has had a dramatic impact on computers consumer electronics and the telecommunications industry as well as the lives of billions of people around the world Apple may not have invented the smartphone but it added vital advances like its superlative touchscreens generous system memory and above all else an ingenious dedicated operating system that lured developers who’ve gone on to create millions of apps for the company’s iPhones and iPads If the rumor mill is correct Apple will introduce its newest version of the iPhone this fall As in the past I expect the company to include new features that will greatly impact the smartphone market and help drive these new technologies toward mass adoption While the three features I’m about to highlight are still rumored as we near the new phone’s launch stories sourced from the supply chain tend to be more accurate The first impactful feature identified by top analysts who talk to the supply chain will be the inclusion of face and eye scanning which could be used to replace passwords or numerical codes so that a person can access their iPhones faster and more securely Though Apple arch-rival Samsung already uses this technology in some of its smartphones and Microsoft is popularizing face scanning to replace passwords through Windows 10s Hello feature if Apple adds this to a new iPhone it will wind up being the company that takes the feature mainstream Apple’s market power and reach would help make face and eye scanning a dominant feature and force smartphone makers to embrace the tech in short order The second thing Apple may do is include “wireless charging” in its new iPhonethat is charging without the need for physical wires or cables by simply placing the phone on or near a charging station Again Apple wouldn’t be the first to do so since Samsung already offers this feature with its 8S model and other companies have begun offering wireless smartphone chargers as well Read more: Why We Need the Liberal Arts in Technology’s Age of Distraction But if Apple adds wireless charging and backs a specific wireless charging standard it will drive much faster adoption of the technology across the board And while it might be a feature unique to premium smartphones at first its inclusion in the new iPhone will drive the technology to the midrange smartphone market more quickly The third thing Apple will almost surely do via the new iPhone is make augmented reality a mass market technology all but overnight At its WWDC developer’s conference in June Apple announced ARKit an toolbox designed to unlock augmented reality’s potential Apps created with this new developer tool will work on anything from an iPhone 5 series phone forward If you want to get a sense of what AR apps can do madewithARKit showcases early examples of AR apps made for iOS 11 and due to launch sometime this fall (Given Apples history I wouldn’t be surprised if the company also added some sort of souped-up camera or a hardware boost that makes AR apps on the new iPhone even more functional and spectacular) Whatever the case when Apple does introduce its new iPhone sometime in the coming months I expect its new features to again drive the smartphone market forward compelling rivals to adopt its approach or refine to its standards making cutting edge technologies mainstream Tim Bajarin is recognized as one of
