Apple CEO Tim Cook Comes Out in Moving Essay

CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, has finally revealed that he is gay, in an essay he penned in Businessweek. “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,” the head of the most valuable brand in the world. “Being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day. It’s made me more empathetic, which has led to a richer life. It’s been tough and uncomfortable at times, but it has given me the confidence to be myself, to follow my own path, and to rise above adversity and bigotry. It’s also given me the skin of a rhinoceros, which comes in handy when you’re the CEO of Apple.”

While it has long been known that the CEO was gay, he never spoke about it and received heavy criticism from gay rights organizations. Earlier this week, though, the CEO vocally criticized his home state of Alabama’s stance on gay rights by saying it is “too slow on equality for the LGBT community.”

Last night, the timelessly trendy East Village nightlife hub, The Pyramid Club, played host to a select group of men, women, and everything in between to celebrate the launch of Stoli’s nationwide campaign to pay homage to the pioneering people and places shaping nightlife culture over the past 40 years. Professor of the Party Andrew W.K. greeted guests from the stage, and he even poured me a couple drinks from behind the bar. Lady Bunny, as always, effortlessly twirled to the Smith’s Andy Rourke who was DJing. “Everyone look, there is a drag queen in the room,” the big-haired diva shouted to the crowd. Taye Diggs was the surprise celebrity guest who was looking oh-so-mighty fine. “I’m a lesbian, and I’ve never felt or saw anything so fine in my life,” a lady outside told me. The ScenebyStoli Project chose Pyramid Club and the East Village, not only because of its character, but also because of its history as a venue for punk, rock, and drag performers, artists, and musicians since 1979.

We know plenty of people out there who are going to use this Halloween to live out their Ebola doctor fantasies (we’ve even seen a sexy Ebola costume). But one organization, Doctors of the World, hopes that instead of capitalizing on the hysteria for gags, this Halloween should be used to raise awareness of the real needs of doctors who are risking their lives to combat the disease. “DONATE A REAL EBOLA SUIT. HELP SAVE LIVES. Donate a Glove. Donate a Boot. Donate a doctor,” says the Doctors of the World website.

Check out to see how you can contribute here.

National Organization for Marriage Donating $200k This Week to Defeat Democrats in NC and AR

The National Organization for Marriage announced the formation of a new Super PAC to campaign against US Senators Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Mark Pryor (D-AR), and to oppose other Republican candidates who, in their words, “abandon support for marriage,” according to a press release from the bigoted organization. “The National Organization for Marriage Victory Fund will spend $200,000 this week in just the North Carolina and Arkansas Senate contests,” said Brian Brown, President of NOM. “Today we’re announcing the launch of a powerful new television ad that puts marriage front and center in the race, contrasting the leadership of Thom Tillis in getting the North Carolina marriage amendment on the ballot with Kay Hagan’s opposition to it. Moreover, Hagan was the person who hand-picked the federal judge who invalidated the North Carolina marriage amendment without so much as giving voters a day in court.”

Let’s fight back against this hate-fueled political donation. Click here to donate to Hagen’s campaign and click here to donate to Pryor’s.
