3. Chaz Bono

Sonny and Cher’s daughter Chastity is now a transgender man who goes by the name of Chaz. While he formerly identified as a lesbian, he underwent a female-to-male gender transition from 2008 to 2010. Rather than keeping this highly personal experience private, he used his celebrity status as a platform to shine a spotlight on transgender issues. He made a documentary film, Becoming Chaz, about the process and even preformed on Dancing with the Stars. This was the first time an openly transgender man starred on a network TV show for something not related to being transgender.
