Chastity Bono - Chaz Bono To Get Security On Dwts

Chaz Bono will have security protection on 'Dancing With the Stars'.

Executives at the ABC network are worried people could target Chaz – who was born a woman but began gender reassignment surgery around three years ago and is one of the male contestants on the show– and are taking precautions by giving him protection both on and off set.

A source told website TMZ while no specific threats have been made against Chaz, the network are aware there are "crazies" who have strong feelings about his inclusion, and feel it necessary he have security when the dancing competition starts tonight (19.08.11).

The 42-year-old is partnered with professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer for the show and believes his appearance will help have a positive impact on young people who are struggling with their identities.

He said: "I'm just a regular guy. All these ideas that children shouldn't watch me because I'm going to be confusing, all of this stuff, it's crazy

"I know that if when I was growing up I would have seen someone like me on a show like this it would have made all the difference in the world in my life."

Chaz's appearance on the show has also been supported by his mother, pop singer Cher.
