Basketball legend Magic Johnson says he's proud of his son for choosing to live his life freely as a gay man. His son, Earvin Johnson III, is a 20-year-old student at New York University, and has recently been spotted cross-dressed and holding hands with his boyfriend.

Magic Johnson told TMZ, "Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way. We’re very proud of him." Johnson III is one of their three children which also includes son Andre Johnson (the oldest), and daughter Elisa Johnson (the youngest).

Magic is not alone in his viewpoint, as a growing number of athletes are speaking out in support of gay rights. Even NFL star Chris Kluwe of the Minnesota Vikings recently made a comment telling athletes who are concerned about possibly sharing a locker room with gay peers to "grow up."
