Apple's CEO Tim Cook officially comes out

In an op-ed in Bloomberg Businessweek, Tim writes about being gay and how the world continues to change.

He wrote:
For years, I’ve been open with many people about my sexual orientation. Plenty of colleagues at Apple know I’m gay, and it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the way they treat me. Of course, I’ve had the good fortune to work at a company that loves creativity and innovation and knows it can only flourish when you embrace people’s differences. Not everyone is so lucky.

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.
Tim is a very powerful person. His role can inspire others to follow suit and perhaps live fantastic lives. I appreciated this op-ed and encourage y'all to check it out.
