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.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
