Tim Cook Coming Out As Gay

Tim Cook officially secured the position as the CEO of the multinational technology company Apple Inc in 2011. Since then, he has been vocal about a lot of things.

One of them is about his sexuality.

In 2014 the CEO opened up about being gay, making him the first-ever Gay CEO of the company.

However, it took him ages to reveal publicly about his sexuality.

Only a few of his close friends and family members knew about it.

Moreover, fear of knocking over his successfully built career and reputation restrained him from coming out.

However, things did not turn out as bad as Cook expected.

While there’s always some backlash from the conservative population, Tim received a positive response from coming out as a gay man.

Furthermore, he has served as an inspiration for all LGBTQ communities.

He advocates for human rights and the issue people of his community face.

People appreciate Tim for his unapologetically vocal nature when it comes to LGBTQ advocacy.

“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.”

Apart from doing an amazing job as the CEO of Apple, he makes the most of his position to inspire and spread the message of equality.

Cook does this in the hopes that everyone gets treated the same despite their sexual orientation.
