Cher’s Daughter Chastity Transitioning to Manhood


“After many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity,” says the publicist of Chastity — who goes by Chaz — Bono, who has already begun the FTM process. Naturally, there are requests for privacy. This is the second time Chaz will have come out: The first, at 18, to her parents that she was gay (Star outed her in 1990, though it took a 1995 Advocate article for her to go public), and now to the world as a transgender person. Given mom’s, shall we say, “trying times” in accepting her daughter’s sexuality the first go-round, we hope Cher‘s a smidge more welcoming this time.
