Legendary singer and icon Cher has now become extremely supportive of her son, Chaz Bono, who legally changed his gender and name last year.
Bono was born Chastity Bono, but started female-to-male gender-reassignment surgery in 2009. He legally became a man after a request from a judge was approved. His name changed from Chastity to Chaz and his gender identification switched to male in 2010, according to PopEater.com.
Cher held a screening of Chaz's new documentary, Becoming Chaz, at her home this past weekend in Malibu.
"I admire my son Chaz's courage for sharing his personal journey. Most important to me is that he is very happy. That's what I care about the most. He has my love and support," says Cher, according to People Magazine.
Becoming Chaz will air on Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network next week.
