There's always going to be an ongoing debate on such sensitive subjects as sexual minorities, but what's important to understand is that all of us have the right to be different. And this seems to be Tim Cook's message in a letter that he published recently, revealing that he is "proud to be gay". Apple's CEO says that this has given him perspective on what it means to be a minority.
What needs to be pointed out is that Tom Cook didn't hide his sexual orientation, but he has now decide to publicly acknowledge it. Apple CEO says that it was his desire for privacy that has held him back from "doing something more important." Here's how the entire content of his letter sounds like:
Apple's CEO Cook also talked about how America has changed over the years in how it views gay people and relationships. He also mentioned that public figures coming out has helped to change American culture to be more tolerant, so maybe that's why he decide to go out in the open.
And without any doubts, what he did today will have a big impact to the homosexual community or any other minorities. Hearing the CEO of Apple is gay will definitely help someone who is struggling with their own identity.
