Apple Contingent Marches in Pride Parade

| News

Apple represented in rather impressive fashion at San Francisco's 44th annual Pride Parade on Sunday.

Tim Cook himself tweeted a photo of 5000 Apple employees and families marching in the Parade. Tim Cook was not one of those marching, but he did hang out beforehand and pose for a number of photos with those marching, even wearing a special tshirt with a stylized Apple logo that says "Pride" underneath it. That same logo was on the iTunes cards the Apple group handed out along the parade route that were worth a free song on iTunes.

(Reminder here about how Tim Cook has not publicly confirmed or denied any sort of tendency.)

This is surprising to me only because I presumed Apple already had an official presence in the Pride parade. Apple has come out in favor of equal rights before, so I am glad to see more along these lines. Let's be honest, Apple has always been a liberal company and this fits right in with every other sort of social statement we've seen from them. I expect nothing less from any company founded by a briefly-Reed-attending hippie. You go, Apple.

This is why i love Apple, they don’t only make products that work and look great. They also give about the environment/nature and sometimes say what they think about certain political issues. I also like that Tim Cook hasn’t “come out”. In a utopia people wouldn’t need to come out. People act like they want and nobody would ask or says something about it.
