Rosie O’Donnell to host special for ‘Becoming Chaz’

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: The world television premiere of the highly anticipated Chaz Bono documentary ‘Becoming Chaz,’ the story of the transformation of the only child of Cher and Sonny Bono from a woman to a man, will launch the OWN Documentary Film Club on May 10 on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

Immediately following the film, OWN Documentary Film Club collaborator Rosie O’Donnell will host a one-hour primetime special event from 10–11 p.m. ET/PT.

In the special, O’Donnell will talk with Chaz, his girlfriend Jennifer Elia, the filmmakers and other transgender people and their families about this life changing experience.

‘Becoming Chaz’ is the story of Chaz’s emotional and physical gender transition, a journey of identity and self-discovery. Chaz grew up feeling uncomfortable in the spotlight, struggling to live inside a body that he knew wasn’t truly his. Deciding there was no choice but to undergo sex reassignment surgery, Chaz and his girlfriend Jennifer decided to document his deeply personal transformation so that others can learn from his experience.

Directed and produced by veteran Sundance filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, who along with their production company World of Wonder, have been the creative forces behind a long history of powerful, groundbreaking and innovative documentaries and features.
