• Apple Adds Special Section Dedicated to LGBT Pride in iOS App Store



    A special section has been added recently to Apple’s iOS App Store dedicated to LGBT rights equality with music, TV shows, movies, apps, and other online media. All of which, reflect LGBT pride. Movies like ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ and TV shows like ‘Orange is the New Black’ have been included in the dedicated section. Other things like local event calendars, podcasts, books, and LGBT themed magazines are also part of the featured category.

    Apple and Tim Cook have been a big supporter of many different U.S. Civil Rights initiatives and have widely supported LGBT rights and promotions.

    Every June, we commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots — a history-making moment in which gay men and women fought back after decades of relentless discrimination. It heralded the beginning of the modern gay rights movement, launching the struggle for public visibility, cultural acceptance, and legal equality that the LGBT community has continued battling for ever since.
    Cook has previously spoken out about equal rights for the LGBT community, as well as the issues regarding minority groups in America. He has also donated a large sum to the Human Rights Campaign’s Project One America previously. Cook is big on giving back to the community after getting paid a very generous salary from the company. Those interested in the new section should definitely head on over to the iOS App Store and see all highlighted material.

      I know right? First we let the blacks marry our white women, and now this. Just awful. Downward spiral. Now I'm going to be forced to marry a gay man. Terrible.

      So, Apple's getting into the political activist business, I see. This won't end well.

      They’ve been in that business for a few years now. This isn’t even the first time they’ve dealt with this issue.

      Went to an FC Dallas game last night. Some guy had a huge Texas flag but it was covered in Rainbow stripes. Got me thinking, what if I waved a huge Texas flag w/ a Cross on it?

      Which one do you think will get persecuted...him or I?

      Next, I'll be able to marry a tree, marry a child or maybe marry a dog. Do what thou wilt. I don't see this new freedom helping anyone or anything. More like a distraction. Meanwhile we are 20 trillion in debt..focus people.

      Haters are gonna hate as usual. What's funny is that they no longer matter. Gays are gaining rights that these "persecuted Christians" fight so hard to deny.
