Tim Cook, Apple CEO expressed his joy in his decision and distinction on his sexual morals with Christiane Amanpour in an interview on Wednesday.

Him is the first CEO of a major company to come out as gay.

“I’m very proud of it,” the Apple CEO told Amanpour for her program on CNN. Being gay is “God’s greatest gift to me”.

Cook revealed his sexuality on October 30, 2014. Although, it had been widely rumored beforehand but he had not confirmed it publicly. “I was public because I started to receive stories from kids who read online that I was gay,” he told Amanpour.

He said he is a private person but ultimately decided that he was being “selfish” by keeping quiet about his identity when he could help people by coming out.

“I needed to do something for them”, I wanted to demonstrate to gay children that they “can be gay and still go on and do some big jobs in life.” Cook said he was shocked that he was the first out CEO of a Fortune 500 company. He said he is glad other CEOs have come out since, although that wasn’t his goal.
