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!
