Chaz Bono Gets GLAAD High Honor!

| Filed under: InspirationAwardzChaz BonoDancing With The Stars


Yay! Congrats, Chaz!

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is awarding Chaz Bono the Stephen F. Kolzak Award which recognizes an openly gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender media professional who has made a difference in promoting equality.

GLAAD president Mike Thompson said about the decision:

"Chaz has opened the door for countless others, reshaping the way Americans think about transgender people today. His bold leadership in sharing his story as a transgender man, as well as his tireless work to secure equality for every American, embodies the values of GLAAD’s Stephen F. Kolzak Award."

Chaz has always been very frank about being transgender - it was the focus of his reality show Being Chaz, and he is the only transgender contestant to ever be on Dancing With The Stars.

Inspiring…times, they are a changing’!

    If straight people had a straight people awards and they nominated only straights, GLAAD would be throwing one of their gay men hissy fits. LOL equality right?

    It gets the mutilated female award. What a train wreck.
