Chaz Bono Shares His Aha Moments

By sharing what it was like to transition from female to male, Chaz Bono has done a lot to educate the mainstream about transgender issues. He's talked about how his gender crisis impacted his family life and created a documentary for OWN, Becoming Chaz, hoping to "put a face on an issue that people don't understand." Last night on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Chaz continued to open up, this time talking about the "aha" moments that made him decide a sex change was what he ultimately wanted. Chaz said it was the media, including movies, books, documentaries, and TV, that helped him realize who he was. Perhaps that's why it's become so important to him to share his transition with the public.
