Cher made a surprise appearance at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles to honor Chaz with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award.
"I'm here because Chaz has the most courage of almost anyone I know. The other day I was having a big meltdown – like you do – and Chaz was saying are you going to come to the thing, and I went God, you know, Chaz, I'm not doing well right now. And she, or he – what? it's 42 years – and he texted me and said 'I've turned into a very understanding smart man, you can call on me.' And so that made me feel so good…(to Chaz) You are the most courageous person I know."
