Chastity Bono, 40, the daughter of singing duo Sonny and Cher, is going through the process of becoming a man, according to TMZ. Bono’s publicist, Howard Bragman, told the site: “Yes, it’s true — Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity. 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.” Chastity will now be referred to as male and addressed as Chaz. His mother, Cher, has known about this for a year, and his partner of several years, Jennifer, is supportive of the change. His father, Sonny, died in a skiing accident in 1998.
