Chaz, whose parents are Cher and Sonny, has told US Weekly that he “wants people to know that transgender people are just like everyone else.” He is the first transgender person to feature on this sort of show, alongside Carson Kressley who will be the show’s first gay contestant.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation released a statement saying: “At a time when transgender representation in the media is sorely lacking, Chaz Bono joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars is a tremendous step forward.”
