Chastity Bono, the lesbian daughter of Sonny and Cher, is getting a sex change, according to TMZ. The website confirmed the story with Bono's publicist, Howard Bragman.

"Yes, it's true -- Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," confirmed Bono's publicist, Howard Bragman.

"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.

We ask that the media respect Chaz's privacy during this long process as he will not be doing any interviews at this time."

Bono's move was applauded by gay rights activists, with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) calling the decision "an important step forward" and urging the public and media to refer to "her" as "him."

"Chaz Bono's decision to live his life authentically represents an important step forward, both for him personally and for all who are committed to advancing discussions about fairness and equality for transgender people," said Neil G. Giuliano, president of GLAAD. "Coming out as transgender is an extremely personal decision and one that is never made lightly. We look forward to hearing Chaz's story in his own words in the future."

I remember seeing Chastity on Celebrity Fit Club, she was very funny and cool. Wish soon-to-be-him the best. :)

Who? But whatever floats her boat, I guess. I don't understand the rational behind wanting a sex change operation though and I don't think I ever will.

Great to see a high profile sex change.

It seems to be gaining more coverage in the media, I loved when Candis Cane got that main role in Dirty Sexy Money and now with Chastity getting a sex change it is good for the transgender community.

Just thinking about this then, I don't really understand how someone could feel that they are meant to be of the opposite gender. I mean how can you know you were meant to be a man if you are a woman and have never experienced being a man. :scratch: That said, I'm not against sex changes, but that doesn't mean I understand them.

I don't really understand people who want sex changes. They still aren't the opposite sex after surgery. Chastity Bono will never have a Y chromosome and will still be genetically female except that her body will be different. If she wants a penis can't she just buy a high quality strap on and forget the surgery? :haha: A surgically manufactured one will not look or function the same :shrug:

Bono to Become a Man!


Which is more shocking: That Chastity Bono plans to become a man, or that Cher's rep lied about her client not shopping around a reality show on the ordeal?

TMZ today confirms the semi-stunning news that Chastity has decided to undergo a sex-change operation. Too fab! (Of course, we reported this two months ago, but whatever, right?) Just glad Chastity is happy and...

...settled with her/his decision in switching her female condition to his male, as Bono's rep has confirmed.

But the Bonos' request, via this same publicist, is amusing, at best:

"We ask that the media respect Chaz's privacy during this long process as he will not be doing any interviews at this time" is how he put it, exactly.

I mean, before all the news broke, Cher and her offspring did supposedly shop the very painful operation required around as a reality-TV show. Not exactly the most "private" way to go about it, eh? Either way, we wish ya luck, Chaz!

GLAAD has just released a statement also applauding Chaz' important step forward, "both for him personally and for all who are committed to advancing discussions about fairness and equality for transgender people."

Well put. We'll have more deets for ya pronto!

So, they are shopping around a reality show about Chastitys sex change. Hmm, this could turn out be one of the most interesting and unique reality shows on tv ;)

Cayne Salutes Bono For Going Public With Sex Change Op



Transgender actress Candis Cayne has applauded Chastity Bono's decision to go public with her plans to become a man.

A publicist for Cher's daughter recently confirmed reports longtime lesbian Bono was undergoing gender reassignment treatment - and Dirty Sexy Money star Cayne is thrilled to hear the news.

The actress tells In Touch magazine, "I commend Chaz for his brave journey, for being such a public figure and owning his identity."

Cayne underwent her own gender change in her early 20s.

Chaz Bono's Only Regret


We know a lot more about Chaz Bono's decision to become a man, and there's one thing he wishes he did differently -- that he had done it sooner.

We broke the story on Thursday -- that Chaz was changing genders. Now we know a lot more.

-- His partner of several years is totally cool about the change, and both of them say it will not alter their relationship. By the way, the partner -- Jennifer -- is hot. She has dark hair, she's around a size 2, and on and on.

-- The process has been going on for a while now. Chaz is taking hormones. As for when he's having the breasts removed -- no date has been set. That operation typically is the marker when judges allow someone to legally change sexes.

-- Cher has known about this for a year.

-- Chaz underwent a tremendous amount of psychological counseling before beginning the physical process of transitioning.

-- Chaz has considered himself a man for as long as he remembers.

-- As for wardrobe, we're told Chaz doesn't think a lot will change because he's been wearing mens clothing for a long time.

Well lets face it a strap on is all she'll really get after the op because they cannot create a full fuctioning penis as of yet. The surgery would probably just remove her boobs and ovaries/womb.

This is just foolish to me. No matter how mentally deranged people are, you can't change who you are. Chastity is not God. She was born a female and she will always be one no matter what she cuts off or attaches. What is wrong with these people? There is clearly an elephant in the room.

When you know nothing about a topic, it's better to shut up than talking out of your ass.

I'm still lmao that Chaz came out to Sunny when she was like 13, but Cher found out when Chaz was 30 by reading it in a tabloid. Poor Cher. Good luck to Chaz, whatever floats your boat.

She was in an all-girl band back in the early 90s, and participated in a fat camp show a couple of years ago.

I am shocked to hear that judging by recent photos I've seen of Chaz.
