Chaz Bono’s DWTS Debut: ‘You Do Not Disappoint!’

After weeks of pointless transphobic controversy, Chaz Bono made his debut last night on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, introducing himself as an “author, activist, and public speaker,” as well as the show’s first transgender contestant. After he received a standing ovation for his Cha Cha with partner Lacey Schwimmer, the judges told him, “You do not disappoint! Chazzy boy, you can dance! You have great footwork! It was sharp, it was precise!” and, “Cheeky but so cute and cuddly! So joyous out here! You should be proud!” Watch Chaz’s debut:
