The basketball legend tells about his feelings when his son came out to him. EJ Johnson is 24 years old and he is starring in reality show Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. His legendary father says that our children are not those we expect them to become, they have their own ways, they are personalities. And the only thin we can do to make them happier is loving them and supporting no matter what, because if your children are LGBT+ they will definitely face prejudice, they will suffer, they will be hurt. And rejecting them will not change them, will not make them happy, oppositely, they will be happy only knowing that mom and dad are on their side and will fight for them against the rest of the world. And EJ’s mom Cookie is also extremely supportive to her son although it was a lesson for her to learn that her child was born gay and it is not wrong. Cookie prayed to God asking what to do with a gay son. And the answer she received was to love him. And now she says that she is a loving mother of an incredible gay son and she found peace with God. She is sure that loving a gay child is not against God, and hating him is. And EJ knows that he is loved and accepted: “My parents have always been super supportive. My sister and I have always been really close and she’s been really supportive as with my brother. When it was time to come out, I was, obviously, scared as most people are. After I got all the love and support from my family then I knew I could go out and conquer the world, I guess”.
