Are you proud to be gay? When you celebrate pride, are you saying you are proud to be who you are or are you just looking for acceptance. I think there is a difference and Tim Cook puts a spotlight on his thoughts once again.
Four years ago, Tim Cook became the first CEO of a major company to come out as gay. He says he's happy about that distinction — and his decision.
"I'm very proud of it," the Apple (AAPL) CEO told Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday in an exclusive interview for her program on CNN International and PBS. Being gay is "God's greatest gift to me," he said. – cnn.com
We need more people to come out and say more than "just please accept me" but more so, hey, you're proud of who you are, we can be proud of ourselves, too. Here's the CNN.com clip.
And I did say that Tim Cook put the spotlight on himself once again, because it is not his first time making these statements. We were there front and center to shoot this video at LOVELOUD Music Festival.
So, back to you. Are you proud to be gay? Do you show your pride at Pride? Or are you more someone who just goes with the flow?
