Apple CEO Tim Cook has officially come out as gay.
'I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me,' he writes in a personal essay in Bloomberg Businessweek.
'I’ll admit that this wasn’t an easy choice. Privacy remains important to me, and I’d like to hold on to a small amount of it.'
The head of Apple, who took over from Steve Jobs in 2011, has never denied being gay and to an extent it has been considered to be public knowledge
But until today, Cook has also never confirmed his sexuality.
