Apple to sell Pride Edition Woven Nylon band for Apple Watch; part of the sales go to LGBTQ groups
by Alan Friedman / Jun 22, 2017, 11:01 PM
Apple has long supported the LGBTQ community and has even before CEO Tim Cook publicly announced his sexual orientation in 2014. That news barely created a ripple which shows you how far the world has come. Unfortunately, there is still a long way to go, which is why Apple is donating some of the proceeds of its Pride Edition Woven Nylon Apple Watch band to LGBTQ groups such as GLSEN, The Trevor Project, the Human Rights Campaign, and PFLAG in the U.S. Out of the country, ILGA will see the same donations from Apple.
Last year, Apple handed out to employees a similar band during Pride 2016, and started selling the current Pride Edition band during WWDC 2017 held earlier this month. You can now find the accessory on sale at Apple's online store. The $49 price is the same for both the 38mm and 42mm sizes.
According to Apple, 500 threads are woven together to form the rainbow pattern on the band. Want to show your support for the LGBTQ community? Purchase the Pride Edition Woven Nylon band and you'll not only support these groups by wearing the rainbow colors, you'll also be partially responsible for the donations that Apple is making from sales of the band.

Not a big fan of apple. But I love what they do for the community. Hope others follow apples footsteps on this and/or other ways to contribute to society

Given Tim Cook is the CEO it was to be expected, even his sexuality being known to the public is a big deal we some companies may have attempted to cover that up in order to remove any chance it may affect them. E.g.that thing that happened with the apple statue in Russia. But yes it is a good step in the future, more acceptance, more life!

I have gay friends and I support them all the way, I get in arguments with people that say anything bad about them, I stand up for their right to get married. But do you think for a minute if Timmy boy wasn't gay he would give a s**t, hell no. He doesn't give a s**t about his own country to pay his taxes and instead hides money overseas. Just the way I feel and it's my right. I pay thousands a year in taxes while he hides his.

LGBT for all? What does that even mean? Keep your cheap slogans and identity politics, we'll keep every major branch.

That looks amazing, reminds me of the old school Apple, would it be weird if I bought one if I am heterosexual?

While I applaud the support, they only donate SOME of its proceedings on only the Pride Edition Woven Nylon version? They're cheap to make and Apple should give all proceedings to the community.

Even if I still had an Apple Watch, I'd pass in that. I'm a solid color guy. #straightprideiscooltoo
