We have seen many people's gender transformation, but none like the one Chaz Bono has been through. Born as a girl, Bono surprised the entire world when he transformed himself into a man in his late thirties.

Who is Chaz Bono?

The Los-Angeles native Bono was born as a girl, Chastity Sun Bono, on March 4, 1969. His parents are Sonny Bono and Cher. He studied law at New York University.

Today he is famous for his classic writing skills. Besides, he was a lead singer in a band and started in a movie named Chastity at a very young age. He currently runs his organization, Chaz Bono.

Bono has served as the Entertainment Media Director for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

Went through Gender Reassignment

By the age of 13, Bono had realized that he differed from other kids. Five years later, he opened up with his parents about his sexuality, and they accepted him with no hesitations.

He first identified as a lesbian. After his 40th birthday in March 2009, he went through gender reassignment surgery to transition from a female to a male.

The California court also granted him gender and name change permission. Thus, he legally became a man on May 6, 2010.

Separated with Fiancée after Transformation

Long before the gender transition, the writer was in a relationship with his partner Jennifer Elia, a private tutor. Their dating life had begun in 1999, and they were living together as partners.

His girlfriend always stood alongside him and supported him, even when he went through gender reassignment surgery.

After being together in a healthy relationship for almost a decade, the couple stepped up their relationship and got engaged.

However, he announced the separation from his fiancée in December 2011. Bono revealed through a tweet that they both had agreed to part ways on good terms and had no hard feelings towards one another.

Thanks for your concern about our separation. I'm doing fine, and we remain on good terms with nothing but respect and affection 4 each other.

Moving on from such a heartbreaking incident, Chaz awkwardly failed a lot of times to find himself a new love. His frustrated voices could be heard as he felt he repelled women more than he would attract them to be his partner.

Is Chaz Bono Married?

Not married yet, but the writer is in a relationship with an actress-turned-charity worker, Shara Blue. She is a divorced woman and has a son named Cooper.

The couple first met in Spring 2017 and eventually started seeing each other. On May 15, 2017, Blue shared a picture of them sharing a passionate kiss. She captioned the photo, "Love and affection. My original crush!"
