CHANGE – SIGN THIS PETITION
Petitioning British government. This petition will be delivered to: British government
Pardon all of the estimated 49,000 men who, like Alan Turing, were convicted of consenting same-sex relations under the British “gross indecency” law (only repealed in 2003), and also all the other men convicted under other UK anti-gay laws.
Each of these 49,000 men deserves the justice and acknowledgment from the British government that this intolerant law brought not only unwarranted shame, but horrific physical and mental damage and lost years of wrongful imprisonment to these men. Alan Turing was pardoned in 2013, but the other estimated 49,000 men deserve the same.
If you haven’t watched The Imitation Game yet you must! See my blog here about it.
Its an incredible true story film and really makes you realise how badly people were treated back then for their sexuality.
Help change this and pardon these 49,000 men.
I have signed this petition will you?
Make sure you check out the film, its incredible!
