Earvin "EJ" Johnson III

For Magic Johnson's son, Earvin "EJ" Johnson III, there wasn't a big "coming out" announcement to the media.  Randomly caught on camera by TMZ, EJ casually talked about his father's latest basketball venture while walking hand-in-hand with another man.  After the web buzzed, Magic Johnson released a statement saying, "Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way."  He also went onto blast homophobia.  EJ's ability to be exactly who he is with a loving father represents progress for the LGBT community.
