There has been plenty of whispering behind closed doors in recent years about Apple CEO Tim Cook’s personal life, but the executive set the record straight in his own words.
“For years, I’ve been open with many people about my sexual orientation,” Cook writes. “Plenty of colleagues at Apple know I’m gay, and it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the way they treat me. Of course, I’ve had the good fortune to work at a company that loves creativity and innovation and knows it can only flourish when you embrace people’s differences. Not everyone is so lucky. While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now,” the CEO added.
“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 acknowledges his personal heroes (Dr. Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy), and added, “we pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick.”
