E.J Johnson put his toned legs on display as he enjoyed a party with friends after the New York Pride Parade. The fashionista has been attending several events on pride months, and one his recent visits showed his altruistic side.
The 26-years-old son of Magic Johnson stunned with a pic shared on his Instagram after attending a party hosted by Skyy Vodka to celebrate Pride. Wearing denim shorts, glittery tights, a sleeveless white top, and sneakers, E.J was shining as he posed in a platform with mirrors with the inscription “Proud American” in the back wearing sunglasses and showing off his toned legs.
“For the gurls #pridenyc #teamthis,” he wrote in the caption.
Just a few days ago, E.J attended an event to raise awareness about AIDS. Wearing a pink blouse and a red skirt with red heels, the young man showed up to the “generationCURE Solstice,” an event hosted by amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.
The event, created to raise money to fund the organization’s cure-focused research programs, also counted with the presence of other stars like Hailey Baldwin, Olivia Culpo, Tommy Dorfman, Victoria Justice and Nicole Scherzinger.
E.J is following his dad’s steps, not only in being an active part of the industry but also in showing his altruistic side by raising awareness about many causes like AIDS and being a leading voice in the gender revolution.
The fashionista, who has become an inspiration for many young people that, like him, don’t want to conform with society's standards about gender, sexuality, and fashion, recently opened up about his coming out and how harsh it was to face his father at first.
Visiting Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch’s show, “Red Table Talk,” E.J and his mother, Cookie Johnson, confessed that Magic’s first reaction to knowing his son was gay wasn’t an enthusiast one.
Cookie revealed that when they had "the talk" with Magic, he was a bit harsh, “My husband is the kind of person like he reacts quickly. Everything that came to the top of his head, he just let it out.” She recalls Magic saying “This is not what I wanted for my son. And do you realize what you’re saying because the world is not going to like that and do you want to live this life?”
After the initial shock, Cookie was able to face her husband and made him see he was tough. Later, the former NBA player went to E.J’s room, and the young man recalls his dad saying “We’re going to get through this and I just need time,” and then they started crying together.
Although Magic’s reaction was harsh at first, the man has been nothing but supportive of his son since then. Even when he gets comments calling him a “bad father” for allowing E.J to “dress like a girl,” Magic believes that his son is helping to make the world a better place.
