Oprah 'Becoming Chaz' to debut documentary on OWN. Oprah Winfrey's cable network is planning to air 'Becoming Chaz' on TV. The documentary will show how Chastity, the daughter of Cher and Sonny Bobo, made the transformation from female to male.
Prior to its TV broadcast, the film will make its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23.
"Chaz Bono was a male trapped in a female shell for as long as he can remember. Growing up as Sonny and Cher's adorable golden-haired daughter in a body he felt wasn't his own was a crucible it took years to transcend. Now, as he undertakes gender reassignment, he's bravely decided to share the process on camera," said the movie description.
Becoming Chaz features a remarkable journey of transformation. As hormone shots give way to top surgery, his story puts a face on a misunderstood subject.
The movie aims to "reveal the humanity and courage it takes for Chaz to ultimately embrace his true self," Sundance's description continued. "His moving struggle will reverberate profoundly for anyone to whom authenticity matters." An air date for "Becoming Chaz" has not yet been announced.
