  4. He seems to be a nice kid but I wonder if his cute boyfriend would also be his boyfriend if he wasn't a celebrity's rich kid. Guess I'm a little bitter today.

  5. Maybe, Peter. Love works in mysterious ways. The first few times I went out with my ex, I couldn't believe the next day how ugly he was. I was like "WTF did I DO last night?!". But then I fell in love with him and all that went away, and he was the most beautiful thing I ever saw.

  8. So, this means that Magic Johnson was having unprotected sex when he was HIV+ (and "sperm washing hadn't started til the mid 90s.... interesting.... very interesting...)

  9. It's Andre Leon Talley all over again.

    He seems like a nice kid.

  10. Seems like a nice, intelligent fellow.
    Good on him, and his parents.

  12. @Glenn, there is nothing interesting about that.

    @topher, thats sweet.

    @peter, seems like a fun guy anyway, he might just like him.

  14. Magic is a good guy and has always been good to us. Happy he supports his son. Earvin seems like a nice young man and his boyfriend is really cute.

  15. the kid seems sweet! Magic has always been a supporter of the gay and poz community and I'm not suprised he supports his son.

  16. Doesn't Magic Johnson attend the same church as Michelle Shock... the one she suggested was the root of her homophobic politics?

  17. What an embarrassment. Magic must be disappointed. I would be too.

  18. That fur better be fake, or else my respect goes out the window.

  19. Young Ervin seems self-confident and proud. I remember Gays like that. They were queens but they were fearless. The ones that survived the epidemic have done well. They're not afraid of anyone.

  20. Gonzo, most of us would say the same thing about you. Self loathing trolls like you are an embarrassment to all out and proud LGBT people.

  21. Good on Magic, and good on his son.

    I've taken offense before to the insinuation that all gay men are "queens" or that we on the more "masculine" side are bad gays for it.

    But this is the flip side of that coin - everyone should be who they are, and there is nothing more refreshing to me than seeing someone be themselves, and not even give thought to whether they should try to be something else.

    If we could only all follow that example, there'd be a lot less infighting, and we'd all be better for it.

  22. @Gonzo-What a horrible comment to make. All Gods creatures have a place in the choir. I'd be proud to be his father. Magic certainly is. And E does seem quite self-confident.

  23. Nice kid with cool parents

  24. There is nothing but good in this clip and this story. Love EJ, Love Magic and his wife for raising such a comfortable-in-his-skin young man.

  25. @ Gigi LOL! I thought the same thing.
