Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that being gay has been God’s greatest gift to him, the media reported.
On October 30, 2014, Cook became the first CEO of a major company to come out as gay.
Although his sexual orientation had been widely rumoured beforehand, he had not confirmed it publicly.
Cook said he was happy about that distinction as well as his decision.
“I’m very proud of it,” the Apple CEO was quoted as saying to Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday in an exclusive interview for her programme on CNN International and PBS.
Being gay is “God’s greatest gift to me”, he said.
