Chaz Bono Transitions From DWTS to Transgender Role Model

Chaz Bono’s mission to be a role model for young, transgender Dancing With the Stars viewers is going strong. The recently eliminated DWTS contestant will appear in OWN’s upcoming Being Chaz special, scheduled to air on November 27th.

As you may remember, OWN’s previous Chaz-centric documentary was called Becoming Chaz, and focused on the star’s preparation for, and transition to, going from the female Chastity to the male Chaz. In this new special, Chaz and fiancee Jennifer Elia will overcome some of the early discomfort involved with living together as man and woman.

Also in the works: I Am Jazz: A Family in Transition, a Chaz-inspired feature that reportedly “follows 11-year-old transgender Jazz and her family wrestling with life-altering decisions as Jazz approaches puberty.”

In all sincerity, we’re thrilled to see fan favorite Chaz’s dreams coming true so quickly. We’ll be watching!
