Apple takes part annually in the San Francisco Pride parade. In addition to Cook, other Apple executives attended – including Deirdre O’Brien, the company’s latest retail head.
The Cupertino iPhone maker regularly makes charitable donations to LGBTQ causes. Proceeds from sales of Apple’s 2019 Pride Edition Sport Loop for the Apple Watch go to a variety of LGBTQ advocacy organizations, including GLSEN, PFLAG, The Trevor Project, and Gender Spectrum.
CEO Cook has often spoken of his support of LGBTQ rights. Cook is the first openly gay CEO of a major U.S. corporation.
