EJ 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 revelation to accepting EJ’s gender-bending that truly caught the attention of viewers. He says it was his son’s favor for dolls over so-called “toys for boys” and cross-dressing at such a young age that led the basketball legend to this realization.
