Apple Celebrates Pride in San Francisco Parade

Apple this weekend participated in the annual San Francisco Pride Parade, as part of its longstanding support of the LGBTQ community.

Apple's CEO Tim Cook, environmental chief Lisa Jackson, and health and fitness director Jay Blahnik were among the many Apple employees who marched in the parade, wearing Pride-themed t-shirts with rainbow-colored Apple logos.


Apple also had a dedicated area at One Market Plaza where people could leave their signature or a message, take Animoji photos, and more.


Apple has been celebrating Pride throughout the month of June, introducing a new Pride-themed Apple Watch band and watch face at WWDC. The company routinely supports laws that protect LGBTQ rights, and opposes laws that discriminate.

I keep wondering what Apple is actually doing these days.

Seems like a liberal’s dream. Little work, lots of pride, and a bunch of pissed off customers in its wake.

Cook would be a better activist than CEO of a multi billion dollar company. Try making a good computer Tim, you guys have made total garbage for the last 5 years. How's that Mac Pro coming along?

- Designing mobile chips that is arguable the most efficient one to date.
- Designing a family of mobile chips to complement the bet in mobile (Sx, Wx, etc).
- Designing biometric security rivaling Hollywood motion capture in a size of your pocket (FaceID)
- Designing AR ecosystem, complete with mobile APIs and software+hardware integration
Just to name a few.

Steve Jobs removed "computer" from the company's name long time ago. Apple is a technology company, not a PC company.

Apple is a publicly traded company. If Tim Cook wasn't a good CEO, the board of directors would've voted him out. No secrets here, it's the same as any publicly traded companies.
