I have been reading about the British Code Breaker from WW2, Alan Turing who was exposed as being homosexual when being so was still illegal in the United Kingdom. He is now seen as a hero by some because of his part in cracking the enigma codes from the Germans. He was caught with his lover, charged with indecency and give a choice of imprisonment or chemical castration by injections of Stilboestrol. He chose the latter option.
