According to Ars Technica, a gay Internet portal called PlanetOut says Apple is as “gay friendly” as it is humanly possible to be. The only brand that’s more gay than Apple is the Bravo cable network, which produces loads of gay-type programs. As regular readers know, this whole gay thing has been at the very top of my agenda for a long, long time. Like when I pushed Disney to make our Fairy Tale Wedding package available to same-sex couples. We’ve worked really hard at Apple, too, and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to guys like Ron Johnson (photo above, in wig and sunglasses, at last year’s Pride event in San Francisco) who did the hard work of getting out on the street and reaching out to gays with flyers and other materials explaining Apple’s support of LGBT issues.
What can I tell you? I’m so proud of this company right now. So proud. I’m going to call Jony and tell him about it and see if he wants to go for a walk together and maybe have a smoothie with me.
