Chastity, Cher’s daughter with late husband Sonny Bono, came out in the open about being a lesbian almost two decades ago. Now the 40-year-old, known to family and friends as Chaz, is going to have a gender re-assignment surgery, reported

“She is proud of her decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by loved ones,” said her publicist Howard Bragman.

“It is Chaz’s hope that her choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as her coming out did nearly 20 years ago,” he added.

Chastity is now an American LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) rights’ advocate and writer.
