  1. If Oscar Wilde had sex with anyone under 16 and evidence of this was included in his trials, then in my view, he has not been pardoned. The pardon under the ‘Turing Act’ covers those dead and convicted of gay sex crimes which are no longer crimes- i.e. in private, consenting and both parties 16 yrs or over.

    While Alan Turing was given a named pardon , others are not named. The figure given by the Ministry of Justice of over 50,000 is an estimate.

    Of course many convictions were for offences in public places and these are not pardoned by the legislation.
