Originally printed 7/10/2014 (Issue 2228 - Between The Lines News)
Venture Beat reports that Apple filmed a video over San Francisco's pride weekend. The video shows thousands of Apple employees marching down the city's Market St. while waving rainbow flags and holding an Apple logo designed with rainbow colors.
Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, tweeted the video, saying "Inclusion inspires innovation."
Apple is one of many major tech companies that filed a legal brief sent to the Supreme Court in 2013. The companies claimed that marriage equality was essential to America's economic competitiveness. The brief argued, "[Tech companies] are competing domestically and internationally with companies inside and outside the United States in places where all couples, regardless of whether they are of the same sex, are afforded equal access to marriage."
