Dancing with the Stars

Allred to Dance

With Transgenders for Chaz

9/6/2011 6:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria Allred and a famed lesbian rights activist will hold a news conference Monday to protest people who are urging children not to watch Chaz Bono on "Dancing with the Stars."

We're told there will be dance and viewing parties across the country with transgender individuals and their supporters on September 19 -- the night of Chaz's debut -- and Gloria will dance with every transgender person who wants to dance with her -- but only at the L.A. party.

The news conference will be held at Gloria's office at 10:30 AM PT.  Of course, we'll nutbush (a form of line dancing) right over there.

update_bar
11:20 AM: Gloria and lesbian rights activist Robin Tyler just announced their pro-Bono dance and viewing parties later this month -- where Gloria promises to show off her moves -- but sadly ... she refused to give us a preview.

my name is toni newman and i am african american transgender. I just wrote a book called I Rise-The Transformation of Toni Newman speaking about my difficult journey to tranform from male to female. Everyone keeps speaking about chaz still has vagine and until she has a male tool she is not male. Transgenders are individuals who are born into the wrong body and they try and transform from one gender to another. The final destination is to get the sexual reassignment surgery *srs* and remove original genitilia that they are born with at birth. But at this time the surgeries from male to female and female to male are not at their very best potential. That means until science can produce a working sexual tool of the opposite gender it makes it difficult to obtain the surgery not knowing what the outcome will be. The science is still growing on this matter and until the science can be proven with a more certain outcome it makes it difficult to obtain the surgery. But what one has between your legs does not dictate what you are. Chaz is a man and he feel likes a man and has taken all the necessary steps to be a man and it does not matter if he has a vagina or a penis he is a man. It takes a great deal of courage to make a transformation and tell the world you are in the wrong body and make steps to correct that and move forward. I applaud chaz for transforming and having enough courage to say this is who i am and i dont care what you guys thinks THIS IS ME. Imagine if you felt you were in the wrong body and was completely unhappy with your current body. It takes a great deal of courage to stand up and say I AM TRANSGENDER and i should know because when i said that I LOST EVERYTHING and had to start all over again all alone.

Someone should really tell the transgender community that if you want to endear "Chaz" Bono to the public and make them sympathetic to the cause, hiring a pig-like bottom feeder like Allred is exactly the opposite of what you should do.

Chaz should dance with a donkey. No humans. That would be disrespectful. Actually as I'm typing, I'm feeling sorry for the donkey...

Its terrible in this world when you cant be yourself. When did it become wrong for two women to dance together. People need to grow up and accept one another. Chaz dancing should never be an issue with parents.

Chastity Bono is a women with a vagina who dresses like a man, takes male hormones to grow facial hair, and calls herself a man.
Isn't that called a Halloween costume?

The only real issue Chaz needs to worry about it her weight. She has GOT to get that under control for health reasons. She should be working at a gym, watching blood pressure, eating habits and cholesterol indicators. Life is too short to spend it being morbidly obese.

THIS IS COURAGE. NO ONE UNDERSTANDS THIS UNLESS THEY ARE PUT IN THIS SITUATION. IT SADDENS ME THAT PEOPLE COULD BE SO IGNORANT TOWARDS THIS. YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE AND EVERYONE SHOULD BE ACCEPTED. I BOW TO YOUR COURAGE AND THE COURAGE OF ALL HOMOSEXUAL/LESBIANS/TRANSGENDER FOR COMING OUT AND BEING YOURSELVES NO MATTER WHAT.
