Chaz Bono is the child of Cher and Sonny, who got a sex change operation at the age of 45 years. The documentary follows this transition of Chaz, both medically and psychologically. Chaz claims that he always felt like a man from the inside.
It felt as if he was trapped in the wrong body. As a schoolgirl, Chaz would cry and pray every night, in the hope of waking up as a boy the next morning. He proclaimed to be a lesbian when he was a teenager. The documentary covers the entire process of Chaz’s gender transition - from the large amount of testosterone injections to the elaborate surgery to convert her into a man! The stream of emotions and frustrations in the mind of a bisexual person are very well depicted in the documentary. The best part about Becoming Chaz is the way the documentary strictly deals with this problem of transgender individuals as a medical condition, and describes the nuances of the treatment procedure. Watch Becoming Chaz online to see this first ever, on-record, sex change of a celebrity. Chaz’s mother, the pop star Cher, however, is not in favor of her daughter’s sex change, and that too a publicized one.
Like every mother, she is worried about the long term effects that the hormone injections and the sex change surgery might have on Chaz’s body. Download Becoming Chaz to witness the sex-changing, rather, life-changing procedure that liberated Chaz and allowed him to become his real self!
