Reports: Chaz Bono on “Dancing With the Stars” With the Stars, which has had very little LGBT representation in all its years on the air, has reportedly signed Chaz Bono as a celebrity contestant for its upcoming season.

This is GREAT news if it does indeed come to pass.

It’s not only a personal opportunity for the only child of Cher and Sonny Bono to take on a physical challenge, having him on such a high-profile show will be the most exposure most people will ever have had to a transgender person.

Chaz transitioned from the female Chastity Bono to the male Chaz Bono and his journey was chronicled in the documentary Becoming Chaz and the memoir Transition: the story of how I became a man.

4 Remarks

  1. I for one guarantee I will be watching!

  2. Sounds like this years contestants will make it a “must watch” season!

  3. Looking forward to watching the show this season. Definitely a must-see. Very encouraging to have a trans* in a high visibility spot like this, perhaps it will raise some awareness. I’ll be rooting for him!

  4. Sounds like I will be watching! Great cast!
