AppleInsider:

This year’s event took place on June 27 and 28. On the second day, thousands of Apple workers marched in unison, accompanied by friends and family. The video shows Apple staff carrying a larger banner and wearing custom-designed t-shirts, as well as a brief shot of CEO Tim Cook in the crowd.

The 2015 Pride Parade celebrated two milestones this year, the parade’s 45th anniversary, and more notably, the historic U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage around the country.

The caption on the video’s YouTube page reads:

“On June 28, 2015, thousands of Apple employees along with their families and friends joined together to march in the San Francisco Pride Parade. They came from all over the world to help demonstrate and celebrate our deep commitment to equality and diversity. Because at Apple, we believe that inclusion inspires innovation.”

Apple has long been a supported of LGBT causes. The company was one of the first American firms to offer equal benefits to same-sex partners, and has donated to a number of gay rights causes. Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook is gay, and has spoken out on a number of equal rights causes.
