Chaz Bono Returning to TV with Reality Special
Although Chaz Bono shuffled off Dancing with the Stars this week, he won’t be gone for long.
The world’s more famous transgender person is returning to TV with a brand-new special that looks at his life after his transition from a woman to a man. The one-hour show will also include behind-the-scenes- DWTS training and will touch on the firestorm of controversy his inclusion in the series ignited.
Called Being Chaz, it is the follow up to the Emmy-nominated Becoming Chaz.
The special will air on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) this November 27.
Chaz is a noted author and transgender advocate, the first ever to compete on DWTS.
“I came on this show because I wanted to show America a different kind of man,” he said after his elimination. “If there was somebody like me on TV when I was growing up, my whole life would have been different. So, I dedicate everything I did to all the people like me especially the kids and teens who are struggling.”
