display_description At first, America knew the only child of Sonny and Cher as Chastity, the cherubic little girl who appeared on her parents' TV show. Later, she came out on a national stage, working with major organizations toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights. Then, within eighteen months, Chaz Bono became the most high-profile transgender person ever. Part One traces his decision to transition, beginning in his childhood--when he played on the boys' teams and wore boys' clothing whenever possible--and going through his painful, but ultimately joyful, coming out in his twenties, up to 2008, when, after the death of his father, drug addiction, and five years of sobriety, Chaz was finally ready to begin the process. In Part Two, he offers a record of the actual transition, a real-time diary as he navigates uncharted waters. Throughout the book, Chaz touches on themes of identity, gender, and sexuality; parents and children; and how harboring secrets shatters the soul.--From publisher description.
