Apple flies pride flag in wake of Supreme Court's Gay Marriage ruling

In the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage, Apple over the weekend had a pride-themed Apple flag raised above Apple headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop. Of course, the flag raising also coincided with numerous Pride Parades which took place over the weekend this past Sunday.

On that note, Apple CEO Tim Cook over the weekend led a group of 8,000 Apple employees, friends, and family members during San Francisco's Pride Parade.

All of this, of course, should not come as much of a surprise for anyone who has followed Apple over the years. Even before Tim Cook assumed the CEO position at Apple, Apple has long been a champion of gay rights.

For instance, Apple has never been shy about voicing its opposition to Prop 8, a proposed law that would have defined marriage as one that exists exclusively between a man and a woman. Additionally, it's worth noting that a 2008 survey conducted by PlanetOut found that Apple was considered one of the more gay-friendly corporations on the planet.
