EJ Johnson son of legendary basketball star Magic Johnson was featured on CNN’s“This Is Life With Lisa Ling,” which aired this past Sunday (Oct. 7) and shed a light on gender fluidity. “It doesn’t register to me as male, female. I’m just EJ” he says in a clip he shared on Instagram.
The 26-year-old fashionista was overjoyed to share his truth to the world, but it was Magic Johnson’s explaining his acceptance of EJ’s gender-bending that truly caught the attention of viewers. He says it was his son’s preference for dolls over so-called “toys for boys” and cross-dressing at such a young age that led the basketball legend to this realization.
