Magic Johnson's son speaks on coming out, the support of his family, and the haters

Ever since basketball legend Magic Johnson's son, Earvin Johnson III, recently came out, there has been a somewhat flurry of conversation. I call it "somewhat" because while his father and mother have been receiving many accolades as good parents who support their son, the young man - known as EJ - seems to not been able to get a word in edgewise about in the conversation about his life. This to me is a shame, not only because he should be able to talk, but also because of the fact that it's rare in which an African-American gay male is seen in the public eye. Via the above interview, EJ talks about coming out, his family, and the attention he has received.
