Chaz returns to OWN

Despite being voted off Dancing with Stars, Chaz Bono will be back on TV screens next month in another documentary.

The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) recently announced that Bono will be the subject of another documentary, Being Chaz, which will examine Bono’s life after his transition. Bono was previously the subject of an OWN documentary called Becoming Chaz. The new one-hour special will look at his life with girlfriend Jennifer Elia following his female-to-male sex change.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) said in a statement that Bono “has helped countless people better understand what it means to be transgender. He should be commended for both his courage and determination.”

Becoming Chaz was watched by more than 705,000 viewers, giving OWN one of its biggest audiences since its January launch.

OWN said that it would also broadcast I am Jazz: A Family in Transition, a program about an 11 year-old transgender girl and her family Nov. 27.
