!! OMG, congratulations! Apple CEO Tim Cook comes out, considers his sexuality to be “one of God’s greatest gifts” !!

In an editorial at Bloomberg Businessweek today, Apple CEO Tim Cook reveals he’s proud to be gay.

“So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.” Cook explains that “plenty” of Apple employees know he’s gay and “it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the way they treat me.”

Tim says he’s normally a private dude, but feels that it’s important to share with the world this type of information in order to inform and inspire others to feel okay.

“I don’t consider myself an activist, but I realize how much I’ve benefited from the sacrifice of others. So if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it’s worth the trade-off with my own privacy.”

Wow! Inspiring! When you consider industries where sexuality is often left unspoken about, you never really think about the tech world! Big-ups and huge congrats to Tim for showing all the gay tech nerds out there that it’s okay (and even GREAT) if your hardware is built a little differently.

With specially commissioned musical arrangements, the Queer Songbook Orchestra presents stories that are familiar to many of us in the LGBT community. But the way these stories are told — through nuanced performances by a dream team of virtuoso musicians — is unprecedented, and shouldn’t be missed.
We especially like this avante garde version of the Rodgers and Hart hit “The Bad In Every Man” (aka “Blue Moon”), featuring a powerhouse vocal performance by Alex Samaras:

Please consider donating to the QSO’s Indiegogo campaign to help the project along.
