Apple CEO Tim Cook says he is "deeply concerned" about LGBTQ+ laws in the US, particularly how Florida has passed a bill prohibiting classroom discussion of gender and sexual identity.

Tim Cook has previously tweeted in support of the reintroduced Equality Act in 2021. He also famously came out in 2014 specifically with the hope that doing so would help others.

Now he's used his Twitter account to decry new LGBTQ+ laws, including the so-called "don't say gay" legislation.

According to Reuters, Apple has joined over 60 companies including Google and Microsoft, in opposing a Texas ruling that medical treatments for a transgender 16-year-old are "child abuse." The companies have put their names to an ad that will run in Texas on Friday, March 11, 2022.
