Michael Musto speaks to Zeke Thomas, the gay son of NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas in an OUT magazine interview. Zeke is a DJ who has been chosen to play the NBA All-Star Game in February.
Said Zeke to Musto:
I came out in 2008, my sophomore year at college. My parents like to say they always knew I was gay. I came out to them, and they were very accepting. I always knew they would be accepting. Growing up, I had gay uncles, like every kid in America. I never was so scared that my parents were going to shun or disown me—the horror stories you hear. I was just nervous about, “Are my friends gonna accept me?” because I was a jock kid, so to speak, with an athlete father.
