It’s not common for a large corporation to get behind a controversial social cause, but Apple — who is known for extending the benefits enjoyed by heterosexual married couples to gay couples — has contributed a video to the It Gets Better Project, featuring interview snippets with dozens of Apple’s LGBT employees.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
The It Gets Better Project aims to show young people that, despite constant bullying in school, their lives will get better as they grow up and become part of a world that is more accepting of the gay and transgender all the time. These videos are produced largely in response to a number of suicides by teenagers who have been bullied for their orientations.
While one can understand why corporations tend to abstain from directly commenting on social issues, it’s good to see Apple getting behind a cause like this one, which we sincerely hope saves many lives.
