Chaz Bono Career
Bono joined the band Ceremony in 1988 and issued one album, “Hang Out Your Poetry,” in 1993. In addition to singing, Bono plays guitar and percussion. In addition to other band members, Heidi Shink and Mark Hudson, Bono wrote most of the band’s songs. Ceremony’s CD received average reviews, and the band finally disbanded.
Bono was named team captain of the “Celebrity Fit Club 3” reality show in 2006. Bono appeared in the 13th season of “Dancing with the Stars” in 2011 and was paired with professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer. This was the 1st time an openly transgender guy appeared on a major network television show for a reason unrelated to his gender identity.
Bono came out as a lesbian in an April 1995 interview with “The Advocate,” a national gay and lesbian magazine. He later published “Family Outing: A Guide to the Coming Out Process for Gays, Lesbians, and Their Families” in 1998, which recorded his own coming out experience and guidance and support for those going through the same thing. He was honest about how his mother, Cher, initially battled with the knowledge that he was a lesbian but had since learned to accept it.
Bono became a writer for “The Advocate” and a Human Rights Campaign spokeswoman. He advocated National Coming Out Day as an LGBTQ activist, campaigned for Bill Clinton’s reelection, worked on the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, and campaigned against the Defense of Marriage Act. Bono’s spokeswoman stated in June 2009 that Bono had decided to begin transitioning from female to male and would change his name to “Chaz Bono.” He had started the transfer process in mid-2008. In May 2010, a California court granted his request for gender and name change, completing his legal shift. “Becoming Chaz,” a documentary on Bono’s transition, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival & was picked up by the Oprah Winfrey Network.
