Sonny and Cher’s daughter, Chastity Bono, made the decision to have a sex change operation and went public with the announcement yesterday.

Chastity "Chaz" Bono has yet to undergo sex-reassignment surgery to become a man. However, one can gather that Chaz already prefers to be referred to as "he" as noted in a TMZ interview with Bono’s spokesperson Howard Bragman.

"Yes, it’s true – Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity."

As you’ll see below, Chastity "Chaz" Bono is not alone in the endeavor to become a member of the opposite sex. Thankfully, once the gender alteration surgery is complete, Chaz will have plenty of support from Cher and his myriad of friends in the gay and lesbian community.

I hope the best for her now and hope that once the surgery is complete, he is happy and fulfilled. Stats for Publicized Sex Changes Trending: Older & Warm
