Tim Cook: I’m proud to be gay

0

Apple’s chief executive publicly confirmed that he is gay in an essay published by Bloomberg Businessweek. The 53-year-old wrote he was inspired by Dr Martin Luther King to set aside his desire for privacy to do “something more important.”

Cook said he hopes to support and inspire others by coming out.

While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.

Cook said he would continue to advocate for human rights and equality. “We pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick.”
Many colleagues already knew about his sexual orientation, he said.
On Twitter co-workers and colleges showed support for Cook.
