Political and social activist Chastity Bono the only child of entertainers Cher and the late Sonny Bono began undergoing a sex change shortly after her 40th birthday on March 4.
"Cher is very supportive and has known about Chastity wanting to do this for a very long time," a source tells PEOPLE. "This will be a long process but it's something Chastity has wanted to do for many years."
Bono's spokesman, Howard Bragman, told TMZ, which first reported the story, "Yes, it's true Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity.
"He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones. It is Chaz's hope that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as his 'coming out' did nearly 20 years ago."
He added, "We ask that the media respect Chaz's privacy during this long process as he will not be doing any interviews at this time."
According to a 1998 PEOPLE article about Bono, at the time she published her book, Family Outing, a guidebook of real-life examples (including her own) that showed young gay people the rewards and pitfalls that accompany being open about their sexuality, Bono first decided to tell her parents she was gay when she was a freshman at New York University in fall 1987. Father Sonny took the news in stride, but mother Cher did not.
"I flipped out," Cher told PEOPLE. "I'd always had this idea that she would get married and have a family." And though Cher had won acclaim for her portrayal of a gay woman in the 1983 film Silkwood and has counted upon gay audiences for being among her staunchest fans she banished her daughter from her Manhattan apartment. Later, when Chastity decided to abandon her studies to pursue a career as a rock singer, she chose to keep her homosexuality a secret.
It didn't work. While she was trying to launch a career with her band Ceremony in 1990, a weekly tabloid announced Bono's lesbianism to the world. Besieged by reporters, she also felt betrayed by members of the gay community, who had tipped off the tabloid.
"It was the most traumatic thing that ever happened to me," she said in 1998. Bono felt completely at sea. "I closed my blinds at home," she said. "I didn't have a life, really."

Anyone else watch South Park, and kept up with Mr/Ms/Mr Garrison? This will end in the same way....She will discover she like other men and will decide she was really happy as a women. It is confusing.
How mmany times can she “come out”???
So if she’s a lesbian today, does she become a straight man after the operation? What will the homos say?
In either direction, I suspect your sex life as we know it is over.
And the truly disgusting part of all this is that Cher is as pleased and proud as she could be to hear this news.
So if feminazis hate men so much, why would a feminazi choose to become a man?
She's a man, baby!
Pure entertainment....The freaks march on....Sonny must be rolling!!!
more proof that having liberals as parents messes up kids minds
so the woman/homo likes women but now wants to be a man who likes women
will this make her normal and straight or still queer and weird/sick.
“And the truly disgusting part of all this is that Cher is as pleased and proud as she could be to hear this news.”
Cause and Effect.
It is Cher’s very “open-minded”, “non-judgmental” “progressivism”, devoid of a moral compass and a firm sense of the normal, that provided no bounds, no grounding for Chastity Bono, confusing her and thus enabling this whole sordid process.
As Rush said, she’s having surgery — an adadictomy (add-a-dick-to-me).
Let’s see her/him get try to get out of a parking ticket. /s
Suggestions for fitting in: never ask if something makes your butt look big. It does and no one cares.
Thank you all for accepting me as I am.
hmmmmm, I’ve heard of an addadicktome ever being successful.
