Chaz Bono has been named Person of the Year by Christopher Street West, the organization which puts on LA Pride each year.
Bono, a West Hollywood resident, will be honored during the annual gay pride festivities which take place in West Hollywood June 8-10.
The transgender son of celebrity superstar Cher, Bono has been in the media spotlight in the past year due to his very public transitioning from female to male. His memoir Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man was released in May to coincide with the premier of Becoming Chaz, a documentary film about his transition.
