As in previous years, Apple participated in the weekend at the San Francisco Pride Parade. Apple employees wore Pride T-shirts with the Apple logo, as well, of course, could not be missing CEO Tim Cook, environmental director Lisa Jackson and health and fitness director Jay Blahnik.
Tim Cook at the San Francisco Pride Parade
Apple has been committed to the rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders for many years – in short: LGBT. It is therefore not surprising that the manufacturer again participated in the San Francisco Pride Parade this year.
Apple has been participating in the San Francisco Pride Parade since 2014 and wants to support the event with the campaign. For this, the company usually also publishes a video that highlights the participation in the Pride Parade. So far, the video has not yet been spotted. As a replacement, we have some photos of the prominent participants, including the special work clothes.
Happy Pride to the Apple Employees marching today in San Francisco and celebrating to everyoneacross the country!

Apple supports LGBT organizations
Apple also had its own space at One Market Plaza where attendees could leave their signatures or messages. Participation in the San Francisco Pride Parade follows a month of celebration for the company. In early June, Apple had a Pride-themedas well as a new one published for the device. With part of the proceeds, Apple provides financial support to organizations that represent LGBT interests and are committed to positive change.
