Apple has honored the memory of fighting for the civil rights of people of nonconventional sexual orientation, opening section in the App Store with content for members of the LGBT community. Available to users movies, music, applications, books, magazines and podcasts gay themes.
In the section devoted to gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, you can find such canvases as “Brokeback mountain”, “Reflected”, “Paris is burning” “Harvey milk”, “Boys don’t cry,” series “Orange — hit of the season” and “Close friends”, the book “Winning” and “Raising the rainbow” app PRIDE Study, and many others.
Apple’s decision is confined to the historic date of June 28, 1969. On this day in the US has been a series of riots and spontaneous demonstrations against a police RAID that took place in a gay bar, Stonewall Inn on Christopher street. These clashes are often cited as the first case in history when the LGBT community had resisted the system of persecution of sexual minorities. It is believed that the riots have become the defining event that marked the beginning of a mass movement for the observance of human rights in relation to LGBT people in the United States and around the world.
We will remind, last year Apple CEO Tim cook officially announced that he is gay. The Director General noted that, though not confessed to his homosexuality publicly, never hid my sexuality. “I’m proud to be gay” – said cook.
In the Russian version of the App Store category with gay content does not open.
