Chaz Bono’s Name and Gender Change Request Goes to Judge

Chaz Bono

Chaz Bono is asking a judge to formally change his name and gender.The 41-year-old writer, activist and reality-TV star, was born a girl to Sonny Bono and Cher. He filed a petition to change his name and gender last week.

Bono’s doctor filed a declaration with the court indicating he performed a gender-change operation last year. Formerly called Chastity, Bono has called the gender change “the best decision I’ve ever made.”

Bono says he always felt like a boy growing up and came out as a lesbian 11 years ago. Now he’s undergone gender-reassignment surgery and hormone therapy.  He tells ABC: “To me, gender is between your ears, not between your legs. I’ve felt male as far back as I can remember.”
