Two years after he started his gender reassignment process, Chaz Bono appears to have completely made the transition from female to male.
He was snapped sporting a new beard as he ran errands round Los Angeles yesterday. The 42-year-old looked all man with his facial hair and short cropped hair as he filled up his car.
All man: Chaz Bono showed off his beard for the first time as he ran errands round Los Angeles
Dressed in shorts and a vest top, Chaz teamed his look with a chunky bracelet, designer watch and aviator sunglasses.
Appearing oblivious to the cameras, he waited for his car to fill before heading off on his busy day around the city. He then went to the gym, visited his doctor and pottered about the city before heading home.
Inked: Chaz also showed off some large tattoos as he filled up his car
Chaz, the transgender son of singer Cher and her late husband Sonny Bono, was born female, but has spent the past few years slowly becoming male.
While growing up, he says he always felt uncomfortable and, after years of feeling out of place, he realised he was not Chastity but Chaz.
A forthcoming documentary entitled Becoming Chaz, which premiered in May on US network OWN, follows his transition and has been nominated for three Primetime Emmy awards.
Partners: Chaz and girlfriend Jennifer Elia at the annual Gay & Lesbian Film Festival in LA last month
Chaz has also released a book, Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man, released in May, chronicling his journey from female to male.
He currently lives in California with his girlfriend Jenny in a six-year relationship which transformed, along with him, from a lesbian relationship to a heterosexual one.
Last November, Cher spoke of her struggle to get her head around the fact that her daughter was now her son and told David Letterman: ‘During the years we have talked about it and I don’t really know what made her change her mind – I still haven’t got the pre-nouns right, but she says that’s not so important – he had changed his mind, she had changed his mind and then it didn’t make very much difference.’

Here are some transitional pix:
Here’s the trailer to Becoming Chaz:
You can watch a two-minute trailer at the Oprah Winfrey Network.
Curious about how they did the store bought dick
I’d like something in a Shaq O’Neal – XX large
tonsils – tonsillectomy
appendix – appendectomy
Changing from girl to boy – Adda-Dictomy
Oh well doesn’t have to strap it on anymore
Most of us guys have gone through life letting the little head do the thinking. Would this be a true case of artificial intelligence?
And what options do you get when ordering? Will that be German army helmet or Anteater?
Oh German army helmet with an extra 6 black inches
Will that be Polish farmer sausage, English Banger, or perhaps I see you in something we just brought out for our new Fall line – known as the South African Black Mambo Supremo – comes in 2 shades, er make that shakes.
Hey I’m an older guy, I’ve got better staying power than that. Black mambo? Hmmm
I wonder if they have an online catalogue
Just wondering if Bono can get a bono
most TGs use a manual pump
Gawd, I’m having too much fun with this. Maybe it comes with the hand pump up option
Thanks Rady, now I have to find out what a TG is
TG suggests Trans Gender
and yes there are catalogs… altho it’s been several years since I hung out in that crowd, back in the 80s, there were only 2 places in the US that made such prosthetics. Now tho…
and here’s a site that links to a bunch of providers
remember this song?

Mercy, it looks real. I very much doubt that I’d want to have my balls squeezed to pump it up but then you know what they say about putting a guy in real estate? Kick him in the balls and give him 2 achers. Sorry Chaz but you’ve got to come up with a better gimmick. Maybe you could make it hydraulic with a time delay that actually squirts when you fake an orgasm. Sorry but the guys in the guys club I belong to, I think would be a little sensitive accepting your membership. Thanks for the education Rady
my understanding is that TGs do feel an orgasm. Last I heard, they surgically connect nerves from the clit. Don’t quote me tho — like I said, this was 20 some years ago.
lol… it was an education. a close friend of mine went thru it – Female 2 Male (F2M). I met a whole world of people that way. Even met an intersexed person.
I really wanna see the film and read the book
