Spring TransNews

Becoming Chaz is coming to the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) on May 10 at 8pm.  Immediately following the show will be a special discussion hosted by Rosie O’Donnell including interviews with Chaz and his girlfriend, Jennifer Elia, directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato and assorted transfolk.

Becoming Chaz first aired at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

Here’s a review:

The last time many of us paid attention to Chaz Bono, he had recently transitioned from a life as a woman to that of a man, and the tabloids and comedians were having a field day. Viewers of Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey’s wildly engaging documentary “Becoming Chaz” might be surprised, then, to see the complicated and often touching story behind the late-night snark.
