Chastity Bono Undergoing Sex Change

Recommended Posts

Quote:
LOS ANGELES, June 11 (UPI) -- Chastity Bono's publicist has confirmed the U.S. gay-rights activist and author is undergoing gender reassignment surgery.

Bono, 40, is the biological daughter of entertainers Cher and the late Sonny Bono.

"Yes, it's true -- Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," Chastity's representative Howard Bragman said in a statement issued to Usmagazine.com Thursday. "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."

"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," Neil G. Giuliano, president of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, told the magazine. "Coming out as transgender is an extremely personal decision and one that is never made lightly."

How brave of him to share this with the public. Hopefully when he's ready to share his full story it can help open some minds about the struggles of gender dysphoria.

I really hope that having a famous person be open about this it will help people to understand it a little bit more. I think its brave of anyone to go through such a huge thing, gender reassignment is not an easy process mentally or physically.

I say good for Chaz!!!

I agree. What a brave soul.

 

I just watched a really interesting documentary on Showtime called Trinidad, about this very issue.

 

I hope that these people can help shed some light on a very painful issue and that seeing the personal struggles these people face can help create more understanding.

It was really eye-opening. I cried through the whole thing.

 

Showtime Official Site :: Schedules :: Program Details :: Trinidad

 

A doctor who herself has undergone genital reassignment surgery and is now a leader in the field, has opened a practice in this tiny CO town and has unintentionally made the town the sex change capital of the US.

 

There are extensive interviews with patients so you get to see the whole transformation. The townspeople are also interviewed, with mixed reactions. Some are upset because of their personal beliefs and ignorance while others have learned acceptance and are even grateful for the economic boom the clinic has brought the town.

 

It's definitely worth watching.

I watched a few weeks back and thought it was really well done and even though there were some ingnorant "townies", I was happy to see a lot of the residents were very open to it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
