Chaz Bono to Speak at National Coming Out Week

Chaz Bono, an advocate for the LGBTA community, will be visiting Penn State on October 10 to speak at the HUB during the promotion and celebration of National Coming Out Week.

Chaz Bono, born Chastity, is a transgendered man that has advocated for progressive treatment for the LGBTA community and has reached out to give support to thousands of fans successfully from his celebrity status.

Being the son of Cher and Sonny Bono, Chaz’s sexual orientation has been a topic of media coverage as far back as 1995 when, before undergoing surgery to become a man, he revealed publicly to being a lesbian.

Since then, Chaz has changed his name legally and after undergoing sexual realignment surgeries, has written three auto-biographical memoirs that examine his change from Chastity into Chaz — his latest book being released in 2012 titled Transition.

He will be speaking at an event hosted by the Student Affairs LGBTA Resource Center in the HUB Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. Click here for more information on Chaz. More information from Penn State Live explaining National Coming Out Week  can be found here.
