Chaz Bono on conquering one of his worst fears

It hasn’t exactly been a dull year for Chaz Bono.

The 42-year-old conquered what he calls one of his worst fears by competing on “Dancing With the Stars," and he also recently proposed to his girlfriend on the OWN documentary “Being Chaz.”

In an interview with iReporters, Chaz recounts his journey, talking about what it means to him to be a role model for the LGBT community and explaining why his own transition paralyzed him with fear.

You'll also find out whether Chaz will follow in the family’s political footsteps, as well as what blew him away about his “Dancing” experience.

Thanks to Chaz and to all of our iReporters for submitting your questions!

    What is up with that quasi-beard. More power to Chaz for living the way s/he wants. However, sorta looks like you're trying too hard, and failing, with the wispy neck fat fur collar.

    Your 15 minutes of fame are over, crawl back under your rock. She is a she, that can never be changed. If it weren't for her famous parents, would anyone even know who she was or would she have been on Dancing w/ the has been B list "stars"?

      Amen!!! I am sick of people calling that a "him". She's still got her axe wound. Take all the testosterone you want, but you're still a chick. An ugly chick.
