Being gay is a blessing :. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple company.

Tim Cook had on October 30, 2014,  become the first CEO of a major company to come out as gay. Cook said he was happy about that distinction as well as his decision. 

He ( CEO of Apple company) was quoted while talking to Christiane Amanpour“I’m very proud of it,”  on Wednesday in an exclusive interview for her programme on CNN International and PBS. 
He explained that Being gay is God’s greatest gift to him, he further revealed that, he chose to come out publicly after receiving letters from children who were in his words
 “going through being bullied, being pushed out of their homes, very close to suicide.
My strong view is that everyone should be treated with respect... I was public because I started to receive stories from kids who read online that I was gay,” 
Tim expressed that he is a private person but ultimately decided that he was being “selfish” by keeping quiet about his identity when he could help people by coming out.

 He said :

“I needed to do something for them,” 

 He wanted to demonstrate to gay children that :

 “ they can be gay and still go on and do some big jobs in life

I learned what it was like to be a minority,” 

Cook said that coming out as gay has given him empathy towards those not in the majority and has also helped him as a leader.

While talking to CNN he said :

 “The feeling of being in a minority gives you a level of empathy for other people who are not in the majority.”
