Chaz Bono Changes Name Legally


Chaz Bono, the transgender son of Cher and the late congressman Sonny Bono, legally changed his name and gender in Santa Monica, Calif.

Born Chastity Sun Bono in 1969, he petitioned to legally change his gender on legal documents and change his name to Chaz Salvatore on Thursday. He was represented by the Transgender Law Center in court.

"Chaz couldn't be happier," said Kristina Wertz of the Transgender Law Center. "This is an important step in his transition and will allow him to change a variety of his identity documents to who he truly is."
