Chaz Bono: I Love Being a Man

2009 Outfest Opening Night Gala of 'LA MISSION' 

Chaz Bono is finally getting a chance to enjoy being a man, something that has taken him decades to accomplish.

“It’s a long process going back almost a decade. I got clean and sober in 2004 and I couldn’t have done this before that,” Bono, formerly known as Chastity, tells, Entertainment Tonight in an interview airing Thursday and Friday.

Chaz, 40, was born the daughter of Sonny and Cher Bono and began undergoing to female-to-male sex change in March. Chaz says he is already seeing significant changes in his body.

“It lowered my voice,” he says. “Fat redistributes, muscle growth, hair growth, sex drive increases.”

Chaz said that mentally and emotionally he has always felt like a male.

“I always felt like the male from the time I was a child. There wasn’t much feminine about me,” he says. “I believe that gender is something between your ears, not between your legs. That is something I discovered in the early ’90s. It was just a long process of being comfortable enough to do something about it.”

Turning 40 was the motivation Chaz needed to pursue the sex-change.

“I was turning 40 and I thought it’s now or never. I want to still feel vibrant and be able to enjoy my life in a male body and not wait until I am an old man.”
