Chaz Bono is no stranger to the limelight and he has been in the news quite a bit over the years. In this blog article, his thoughts on being transgender are shared.
Chaz Bono’s Transgender Journey
When Chaz Bono was just a little boy, he knew something was different about him. “I always felt like I was in the wrong body,” he recalls. “There was something about the way I looked that didn’t feel right.”
Growing up, Chaz tried his best to fit in and hide his feelings. He refused to wear dresses or makeup and avoided talking about his feelings out of fear that people would think he was crazy. It wasn’t until he was a teenager that he finally found the courage to start his own journey towards understanding himself.
In 2007, Chaz underwent gender reassignment surgery – a process that took several hours and required multiple surgeries over the next few years. Today, Chaz is living as a woman full time and is happy to finally be living authentically in accordance with who he truly is.
Chaz’s story is inspiring and demonstrates just how important it is for transgender individuals to be able to freely express their true identity. Thanks, Chaz, for sharing your amazing journey with us!
