Chaz Bono, eight months into his gender reassignment, said Thursday it was the best decision he's ever made.

Appearing on Good Morning America, he said: “I feel so much more comfortable than I've ever been. I've felt male as far back as I can remember.”

Bono was born Chastity Bono to gay idol and singer Cher and the late Sonny Bono.

In June, in confirming Bono's transition, a spokesperson insisted the entertainer would “not be doing interviews” for some time. But as the most famous person to undergo the surgery he quickly became the face of the transgender community.

The entire female to male transition is expected to last four to five years.

Bono said he always felt male: “I felt like one of the boys. My friends were boys. In school I related to boys.”

“At 13, 14 it was real clear at that point that I was attracted to women,” he said. “And so I was attracted to women, I am a woman, I guess I'm a lesbian.”

The forty-year-old entertainer and respected gay rights activist came out at the age of 18 to her mother, who reportedly was troubled at first with the news. But it would be another eight years before she announced being a lesbian to the world in an interview with gay monthly the Advocate.

Bono said he'll continue to advocate for the LGBT community. “I'm just a little more focused on the 'T' now than I am on the 'L' and the 'G,'” he said.
