We've been super happy for Magic Johnson's son, EJ, and his decision to publicly be out and proud at the age of 20!
He was spotted yesterday walking around with his boyfriend, hand-in-hand, not a care in the world — except for the love between them! We're sure he cares about that! The cherry on top of all that inspiration is that his mom and dad are extremely proud of him, being supportive in every way!
Now we're hearing that fellow Laker baller Kobe Bryant is proud of the whole family! Here's what he said:
"Of course Magic is supportive of and loves his son. Why should anyone be surprised? What I can't tolerate is a lack of tolerance."
We're not surprised in the least! Magic is an amazing dude. Honestly, any kind of surprise that people have comes from a false notion that parents are going to automatically be disappointed if their kids aren't straight. We know plenty of parents out there that are GOOD parents, that support and love their children no matter what!
We just hope that we get to a point in this world where it stops being such a scary thing to come out and be who you are! That would be the best day and age EVER!
