Chaz Bono Now Legally, Physically a Man

May 7, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Chastity Bono, the transgender daughter of Cher and the late Sonny Bono, is now legally “Chaz” Bono. Along with the name change, Chaz has also legally and physically become a man.

Chaz appeared in a Santa Monica, Calif. court on Thursday, dressed in a man’s suit and tie and his hair shorn in a closed cropped style, to finalize his petition for a legal gender and name change. When he walked out of the courtroom yesterday, Mr. Chaz officialy became a man. And he may now change all of his official documents to male.

His lifelong journey to find his true gender identity, ended last year, when he underwent “irreversible surgery” to erase all of his female body parts:

“[A]ccording to documents filed in March, Chaz has also completed his gender reassignment surgery, the documents state that Chaz underwent an “irreversible surgery” on September 23, 2009 to change his “sex characteristics from female to male.”

Kristina Wertz, legal director for the Transgender Law Center, said “This is an important step in his transition and will allow him to change a variety of his identity documents to show who he truly is.”

    I think it’s awesome that Chaz Bono has changed HIS name and body to match what HIS brain, soul and spirit had been telling HIM for so very long. It’s a great uplifting experience and makes life all the more sweet to lose the extra parts that don’t belong, and gain new one’s in the right places. I understand that 100% as I’ve gone down the same road myself. People don’t understand what it’s like to wake up everyday being trapped inside a body that you don’t identify as part of you. YOU GO GUY AND ENJOY!!!!!
