Apple backs LGBT Equality Act
Wired reports on Apple’s backing of a bill before Congress to extend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to apply to sexual orientation and gender identity:
The bill has 155 co-sponsors in Congress. It’s also backed by one of the most powerful businesses in the world: Apple. In a statement to Human Rights Campaign, Apple wrote, “At Apple we believe in equal treatment for everyone, regardless of where they come from, what they look like, how they worship or who they love. We fully support the expansion of legal protections as a matter of basic human dignity.”
My favorite thing about Tim Cook’s Apple is that it takes a stand on issues without prompting from outside sources.
