Apple News of the Day: CEO Tim Cook Comes Out as Gay
- -

Apple CEO Tim Cook is making headlines Thursday, and not because of a new Apple Watch, iPhone or iPad. In a column for Bloomerg Businessweek, Cook has come out to the public as a gay man.

"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."

He admits that many of his colleagues already knew, and he has not been silent in the past about speaking up publicly on discrimination.

He also says that privacy is a big issue for him, but "if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it's worth the trade-off with my own privacy."
