Cher (real name Cherilyn Sarkisian, born 1946) is an American singer and actress. She was half of the duo Sonny and Cher with her husband Sonny Bono (1935–1998) until they split up in 1975, since when she has had a solo career.

LGBT-related aspects

Sonny and Cher's daughter Chastity Bono (born 1969) became Chaz Bono in 2010 following gender reassignment.

Cher was listed under "Friends to LGBT people" in the Independent on Sunday's Pink List 2013. The citation said:

"The star has given vocal support of gay fans and her trans son Chaz Bono. She said Chaz’s decision had been difficult for her but added “we’ve actually had the most fun together lately than we’ve had in forever”."[1]
