E.J. Johnson Speaks On Coming Out, Magic Johnson’s Support


/ April 17, 2013

Magic and Cookie Johnson’s son E.J. caused quite a stir on the ‘net when he was seen stepping out with his boyfriend for the first time in public earlier this month.

While his parents have been openly supportive, E.J. hasn’t spoken on the attention till his recent interview with Howard Bragman on Gwissues. He says that the publicity has been surprising given his sexuality was no secret to those closest to him.

“For me, it was really surprising because I didn’t think it was gonna be that big of a deal,” E.J. said. “I had been out to my friends and my family for at least five years. It was almost as if I was coming out of the closet again so like reliving the experience has just been both exciting and interesting rather because I’ve been through it but to have the media involved is just different but I’m reveling in it.”
