Daughter of Sonny and Cher Changing Gender

Chastity Bono, the daughter of Cher and the late Sonny Bono, is in the early stages of transitioning from female to male. Bono’s representative, Howard Bragman, told HLN's Showbiz Tonight. Now known as "Chaz," Bono is an LGBT rights advocate, writer, actor and musician.

Said Bragman, “Yes, it’s true — Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity. He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones. It is Chaz’s hope that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as his ‘coming out’ did nearly 20 years ago.”

I met Chastity at a book signing for "Family Outing" a decade ago. SHE seemed cool enough. Let's hope HE will be cool, too.
