Cher and Giant Hair Present Son Chaz Bono with GLAAD Award

A dazzlingly hairtastic Cher made a show-stopping appearance at the GLAAD Media Awards Saturday, rocking a giant ‘fro while presenting the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to her son, activist Chaz Bono, who was recognized for his documentary, “Becoming Chaz.” 

Cher told the crowd, "I don’t have anything prepared because I'm so nervous… I actually didn't tell him I was coming tonight."

This was the most candid
Cher has ever been about her Chaz becoming a man. "I think everyone knew how freaked out I was to find out he was gay, this was just one step beyond that… I'm here though because Chaz is the most courageous of anyone I know." 

Bono told "Extra" that
Cher "was incredibly supportive," of his gender change. "When reality started to hit her, I think she started to go through a bit of a mourning process for her daughter.”

Chaz, the first transgender person to compete on "Dancing with the Stars," was joined at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Awards by various stars, including Ellen DeGeneres, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Joshua Jackson, Jason Mraz and "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson, who was presented with the Vanguard award following the recent loss of his uncle to AIDS.
