Alan Turing has been officially pardoned for his 1952 conviction on charges of homosexuality. That conviction, of course, led to his chemical castration by means of injected female hormones and his suicide two years later.

“Thanks for being a genius and perhaps the single most important figure in the defeat of the Nazi war machine. Sorry about the torture. LOL!”
