New iPhone 7 Commercial Features Young Gay Affectionate Couple

Apple is featured an affectionate gay couple riding the New York City Subway in a brand new ad promoting their soon-to-be released iPhone 7.


Apple CEO Tim Cook has not been shy about his plans to use his position to empower young LGBT people, as he recently told the Washington Post:

I was thinking about kids. I was getting notes from kids who knew I was gay, or assumed I was, because of something they had read on the Web. And they were kids who were distraught. They thought they couldn’t achieve anything. They were seeing the national discourse around it and feeling isolated and depressed. And I just thought—I’ve got to do something…[I’ve got to show] that it’s not a limiter. It’s okay to be [gay]. That it’s okay to be honest about it. I figured if I could help one person, it would be worth it.
