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.

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: Daniel Avery’s ‘Knowing We’ll Be Here’ Video + FACT Mag Mix !!

Check out the video for UK techno and electronic aficionado Daniel Avery‘s latest ‘Knowing We’ll Be Here’ off Avery’s debut album Drone Logic. A bit about the video from London director Joshua Lipworth:

“The idea for the video came from the track’s euphoric distorted drones which sounded to me like a kind of drowning sensation,” Lipworth explains. “From research I found that before you die from drowning there is a reported euphoria that can last for several minutes as your brain is starved of oxygen and I wanted to replicate that progression visually.”

Check out the video, along with his latest mix for FACT Magazine below! Avery’s Drone Logic is out now for purchase on Phantasy recordings.
