Tim Cook "Outed" by CNBC Reporter
I really didn't know that Tim Cook wasn't already "out." Many media outlets have had him on their "top gay people" lists, and some have even commented that when Cook first moved into position as Apple's CEO, he was announced as a gay CEO. Perhaps we all just assumed he was gay?
Regardless, the bigger issue here is that of all of the people interviewed for James Stewart's piece about gay CEOs, not one of them gave the "OK" to disclose sexuality. Yes, we know that your sexuality is only a part of who you are and does not define you, but in a time when we are having to fight for our rights, every little bit counts, and these are big bits that could help turn the tide against anti LGBTQ mindsets.
