    Waiting til you a complete success at the top or near the top of every possible personal success rating to come out and risk nothing? Please your definition of pride must be very shallow.

    As you say. I'll reserve judgment until my mind reading device arrives from Ebay.

    Actually yes, when it comes to pride, historical context is pitiful. Pride takes a willingness, a demand even, to embrace a person, idea, ideal regardless of historical, social, or political environment. Tim Cook did not display any of those, he waiting til it was mostly acceptable.

    So you can look inside his brain and see a lack of pride? Did you consider that it's possible to feel pride and still comprehend that publicly stating that pride could be detrimental to your livelihood?

    So if you see a father never acknowledging his wife or his child, but yet he always tells you he's proud of them... would you believe him? Really? You are gullible then.

    Is that what he did with a relative, or was it a decision he reserved for himself?

    If you're hiding something most of your life, for gain and/or protection, and only acknowledge it when it is safe to do so,... there is no indication of pride. Or you have a strange way of looking at pride. That's it, that's all there is. Bless your heart.

    I hide a detail of my life every day, because it is stigmatizing and can be a hinderance in how I am treated. That being said, on the same token, if given a magic pill to change myself, I would refuse. It's a large part of what makes me "me." That's what happens with hidden stigmatizations.
