Chaz Bono

Chaz with GF Jenifer Elia Chaz with GF Jenifer Elia

Sonny and Cher's adorable litte blonde girl grew up before our eyes, and then ... transitioned into a man.

becoming_chazBorn Chastity Sun Bono on March 4, 1970,  she came out as gay in 1995 and became a  lgbt activist and the author of Family Outing.  

But she was a male trapped in a female shell for as long as he can remember. Growing up as Sonny and Cher's adorable golden-haired daughter in a body that she felt wasn't his own was a crucible that took years to transcend.

Then in 2009 she announced to the world that she was really a he: Chaz Bono. 

That was the start of a media blitz that has followed the transition of Chastity to Chaz, and most recenlty stirred controvercy when Chaz appeared on Dancing With The Stars.  

Now, as he undertakes gender reassignment, he's bravely decided to share the process on camera, inviting us along on Chaz's remarkable journey of transformation.

As hormone shots give way to top surgery, down-to-earth, unflappable Chaz beams with a sense of liberation and goes public with hissonnycharcastity story to put a face on a misunderstood issue.

Meanwhile, his gregarious girlfriend grapples with the realities of suddenly living with a man, and it's clear sex-change isn't solely a physical transition.

Intimate and nakedly honest, the film reveals the humanity and courage it takes for Chaz to ultimately embrace his true self. His moving struggle will reverberate profoundly for anyone to whom authenticity matters.
