    Joshua "Zeke" Thomas, as told to Michael Musto (Out magazine)"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."

    ^Of course, the homophobes probably will find some way to "blame" Magic and Isiah's famous pregame kisses amid the Piston-Laker feud in the late 80s for their gay sons, but as I imagine Zeke would say, nobody cares about those haters.

    SoundCloudCosmopolitan Magazine calls DJ Zeke Thomas, “insanely cute and overwhelmingly talented” and when you see him perform you will see why.

    I recall Isiah Thomas and his son having a "NOH8" photo taken together

    which at that time was quite surprising, at least to me.

    What is interesting is that Zeke & Magic were icons, respectively, for their generation; and their sons are now both out men.

    Incidentally, I even heard Jordan's daughter might be also on the same team as well.

    Anyways, nice find and share; didn't intend to hijack your thread.

    Oh, no, not a hijack at all! Thanks for adding the great info! Yes, MJ's daughter is indeed out, too!

    I forgot all about Dad and Son's NOH8 pic, and was pleasantly surprised back then, too, mostly because Isiah was portrayed in the media as a foil to Magic following his HIV announcement. Isiah was so despised in New York for his horrific Knicks tenure that I foolishly wrote it off as just some kind of a PR grab. Anyway, it's good to see Big Zeke and Little Zeke doing well!

    His son is very attractive, not that that's of any importance. But, as an aside, did he age? He looks the same age as his son. Although, I'm sure that has something to do with the magic of photoshop.

    Coming from Detroit Zeke was an icon.
