Even though he’s not transitioning, EJ wanted to bring the discussion to his show.
“It’s just been so much of a journey and a conversation piece in recent times,” he says. “I can remember, even four years ago when I was at NYU and no one was even talking about, you know, pronouns and how people wanted to be addressed. And now, hearing my friend say, ‘Oh, every time we start class, every single kid has to be like, ‘Well, I identify as this. Please call me he, or she,’ … it’s just amazing that that’s where we are.”
