In honor of Alan Turing: A British mathematician and the father of modern computer science, Alan Turing was instrumental in breaking the military codes of Nazi Germany, and along with other codebreakers at Bletchley Park, helped to bring down the Third Reich. His intuitions of algorithms and mathematical probabilities saved countless lives, and he is one of the (many) unsung heroes of the Second World War. He was discovered to be in a homosexual relationship in the early 1950's in Great Britain, and was chemically castrated as a result. "The Gay President: A Novel" is in tribute to Alan Turing and his family, and for homosexuals and lesbians everywhere who have been silent victims of disdain and misunderstanding. In the final irony of Alan Turing's life, he gave his loyalty to his country and helped to destroy a regime that exterminated homosexuals, only to be destroyed because of his sexual orientation by the same government to whom he had sworn his allegiance. The following is a brief synopsis of the book:
As the nation is blowing up all around him, the newly-minted President of the United States stands in the hinge of history and erotic love. While bringing his enormous talents to bear in dealing with a rapidly developing crisis, the President cannot deny his feelings of love and ardor for a member of his staff. This is Volume I of a continuing series, and is the first work of prose published by Dominic Lacerva. It is available only through Amazon Kindle at the present time.
