Is EJ Johnson Transitioning Into a Woman?

The reality star addresses the questions about his gender.

Over the past year, EJ Johnson has emerged from obscurity to become a reality star and a budding fashion icon known for his edgy style. But it seems like some confuse his gender-bending looks with a signal of a larger change. Now, Johnson is speaking out in order to set the record straight about whether or not he's transitioning from male to female.
“All the people that are so quick to say that, like, because I wear womenswear sometimes, that means I’m transitioning,” the Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star declared in a clip from the show’s upcoming fourth season. “People are just so ignorant and dumb sometimes.”

He goes on to say, “If I come out in a Diane Sawyer interview and I’m like, ‘Diane, I just want to let the world know, I am becoming a woman.’ Until that day, everyone needs to have a seat."
