Chaz Bono was on Toronto on Thursday where he shot an upcoming cameo on DEGRASSI working in a storyline with the show’s transgender teen character, Adam.
“There are a lot of trans kids and teens and to have representation of themselves really means a lot,” Bono said before heading in front of the cameras.
“At that age there wasn’t anything [for me]. I didn’t know about transgender people or that there was a possibility to transition or anything. And it made it really difficult to figure out what was going on with me.”
Bono appears as a judge on a battle of the bands contest that involves Adam’s group, WhisperHug. Adam spots Bono and approaches him to talk about girl troubles, and the struggles of gaining acceptance as a transgender teen.
