In countries like Uganda where the subject of homosexuality is still a heated debate, in the US Apple CEO Tim Cook has confirmed today that he describes himself as gay. This automatically makes him the most outstanding openly gay CEO.
Cook says in an essay for Bloomberg BusinessWeek that
“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.“
Recently we have seen Apple Campaigns Over LGBT rights and also years Cook has taken a number of strong positions in favor of these rights.
