What has emerged recently is a picture of actress Jennifer Aniston with transgender Chaz Bono when they were teenagers.

They were both apparently friends during their days at the prestigious New York City High School Of Performing Arts in 1987, Daily Mail reported.

Chaz Bono at that time was still a girl and was known as Chastity.

The picture has both of them hanging out in a class room, dressed up in casual t-shirts.

Jennifer, as is known, went on to become a popular star after getting her break in America's most popular TV series Friends.

Bono is the highly anticipated contestant of Dancing With The Stars, which will be premiered Monday. Bono's participation has been opposed and criticized by conservative media and critics.



Chaz Bono and Jennifer Aniston

Bono, born Chastity, is a female-to-male transgender who legally changed his gender last year. He is the only child of Cher and the late Sonny Bono, famed American entertainers, though he has several half-siblings from their other relationships. 

Bono has previously written books on his encounter with the discovery of his own sexuality and coming out to his family and now says the current controversy inspires him all over again to share the truth of transgender people. He is engaged to his longtime love, Jennifer Elia, for two years.

A strong advocate for gay marriage, Chaz did, however, reveal that they would be married as man and wife, the report stated.
