Taking to the set to discuss his new book, Chaz Bono visited "The Late Show with David Letterman" yesterday (May 11).

Posing for pictures with partner Jennifer Elia beforehand, the 42-year later sat down with the host to discuss his transgender experience, which he details in his new memoir titled "Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man."

Chaz explained to Letterman, that when he was younger, he confused his sexuality with his gender identity, making it the experience particularly difficult.

Bono also revealed the ups-and-downs his long-time girlfriend, Jennifer, had while going through the process with him, as they have been dating since before his physical transition into womanhood began.
