Magic Johnson Speaks On the Decision To Understand And Accept His Son EJ’s Gender Fluidity

“It doesn’t register to me as male, female. I’m just EJ.”

Published October 8, 2018

EJ Johnson son of legendary basketball star Magic Johnson was featured on CNN’sThis 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.
