Chaz Bono files legal papers to officially change his name and gender

http://images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/20091119/300.bono.chaz.lc.111909.jpgChaz Bono is making it legal.

The only child of Cher and the late Sonny Bono, who was born a girl named Chastity, has asked a judge to legally change his name and gender to reflect the sex-change operation he had last year.

A hearing for his request is scheduled for May 6.

“Once I began to actually deal with [my identity issues], everything in my life got easier,” he told People in December. “I’m a better version of myself. I’m much more present now and more engaged. … It’s hard for me to articulate how this feels – when you’ve lived your whole life and have everyone relate to you as something you don’t feel. When that finally gets righted, it’s amazing. I finally get to live my life the way I’ve always wanted to.”
