LA judge grants name and gender change
Chastity Bono has legally become a man.
Cher‘s child has been granted a name and gender change by an LA judge.
The 41-year-old will now be known as Chaz Salvatore Bono.
‘Chaz couldn’t be happier,’ says lawyer Kristina Wertz in a statement.
‘[It is] an important step in his transition. [It allows him] to change a variety of his identity documents to show who he truly is.’
Chaz – whose dad was the late Sonny Bono – underwent sex change surgery last June.
