So like, NO mention of Alan Turing’s queerness in The Imitation Game trailer, unless you count a mention of “having secrets.” Yeah, nah.

Friendly reminder that even though he cracked the Enigma code, the British government saw fit to criminalise him for his homosexuality.

Friendly reminder that the estrogen injections he accepted instead of prison drove him to suicide.

Friendly reminder that the victors of war commit crimes too.

Friendly reminder that this is also an important part of history, and of Alan Turing’s history

Friendly reminder that it looks suspiciously like there is a conventional female love interest being hackneyed into this film about a gay man.

I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING PLEASANTLY SURPRISED THO

I’m glad I saw this post because I think if I just happened upon this trailer and watched, it would’ve made me pretty darn upset. Now I know to just avoid it…
