Tim Cook: iGay

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.

Bloomberg Business Week.

'Hey, Tim Cook's come out!'

'He was in?!!'

'Yeah, I know. Can I have 400 words by 2pm?'

'The same think-piece we always run when a public figure comes out?'


'So brave?'

'The times they are a-changing; gay marriage, Graham Norton, Tom Daley, the president of Iceland's a lesbian...'

'But is blank the last closet?'

'And we mustn't forget in Russia people are rounded up in concentration camps just for being gay.'

'Quick mention of Ray Cole in Morocco to make it sound topical...''

'That sort of thing, yeah. Then the inevitable hackneyed conclusion; I look forward to the day when this will not be news.'

'I'm on it, chief!'
