For better or worse, since his TV debut at the age of two, she has always been thought of as Sonny and Cher's adorable daughter, Chastity. Her parents' decision to put her on their TV show has shaped the course of her entire life: that cherubic little girl from the TV screen would grow up to be a middle-aged man. Imagine feeling in your gut that your whole existence is a lie. Imagine knowing, for decades, that the person you are and the body you inhabit don't match up. Imagine living that life under the scrutiny of the public eye. In the 1990s, the young woman, Chastity, became a national face of the GLBT political movement, and a beloved activist and author. But life, as a woman, wasn't ever going to be fulfilling for her. Wrestling with gender confusion, failed relationships, the loss of a parent, drug addiction, and a journey toward sobriety, Chaz has fought many demons in his life.
