Earvin "EJ" JphnsonEarvin Johnson III, 20, nicknamed EJ by his parents Cookie and Earvin “Magic” Johnson, strolled proudly hand in hand on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip with his boyfriend and his parents made it clear that they support him 100 percent, reports TMZ.

 “Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way,”  Magic tells TMZ. “We’re very proud of him.”

Wearing what looks to be black stockings, a fur coat and carrying a red purse, EJ said that he was hoping and praying for his father’s baseball team, the L.A. Dodgers, and for the Los Angeles Lakers to be successful.

EJ is one of the basketball legend’s three children. Andre Johnson, 31, is his son from a previous relationship. He and Cookie are also parents to Elisha Johnson whom they adopted in 1995.

This is not the first time that Johnson has faced what is typically a taboo topic in many quarters of the Black community. On Nov. 7, 1991, he announced that he was infected with the HIV virus and retired from the NBA though he made All-Star and Olympic appearances.

Then, as now, he and his family have handled the media with grace and class.

EJ’s very public coming out moment arrives at a pivotal time in U.S. history as the Supreme Court determines the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act — both anti-gay legislations.

Congrats to EJ and his significant other!
