Chaz's talk will be at the IU Auditorium at 8:00 pm on Thursday, October 4. Bono's talk, "Transition: How I Became a Man," is part of the College of Arts and Sciences' Themester, "Good Behavior, Bad Behavior: Molecules to Morality." His talk will be related to his recent book, in which he talks about his life growing up as the only child of legendary performers Sonny Bono and Cher, which included well-publicized struggles with drug addiction. Now, he might be the most well-known transgendered person in the country, with a new book, a documentary and a stint on the popular show "Dancing With the Stars."
Human Biology is a cosponsor of this event, and Chaz will be available to speak with students at a student reception earlier in the day (1:30-3:30) at the University Club Room in the IMU. We encourage all of you who are interested to attend!
FYI, Bono's visit is also part of the fifth annual Sexploration Week at Indiana University Bloomington, Oct. 1 to 4, which once again offers a positive view of sexuality and gender through such activities as orientation-inclusive speed dating, free and anonymous HIV testing, IU Secrets, and films.
