Apple CEO, Tim Cook, who talked about his sexuality in a CNN interview stated that being gay “is God’s greatest gift to me.”
The Apple CEO made precisely the same declaration exactly four years ago, when he penned a ‘coming out’ article for Bloomberg Technology on October 30, 2014, his sexuality in a CNN interview stated that being gay “is God’s greatest gift to me.”
Steering away from controversy, Cook avoided answering interviewer Christiane Amanpour’s question about the level of tolerance for gay people in his Silicon Valley-based industry. Amanpour said that Cook was “quite brave,” to come out as a CEO “especially in Silicon Valley,” indicating that the environment in the tech capital dominated by progressivism is perhaps toxic for gays.
According to Tim Cook who acknowledged that he is a very private person, he was being “selfish” by keeping quiet about his identity when he could help people by coming out. He further maintained that coming out as gay has given him empathy towards those not in the majority, and has also helped him as a leader.
