Chaz Bono Proposes To Girlfriend Jennifer Elia On New OWN Documentary 'Being Chaz' (VIDEO)

It's been a big year for Chaz Bono -- from starring on "Dancing With The Stars" to being nominated as one of Out magazine's 100 LGBT people of the year -- and if the above clip from the new OWN documentary "Being Chaz" is any indication of what's in store for 2012, next year should be just as monumental.

In the preview, which is from the follow up to the Emmy-nominated documentary "Becoming Chaz," Bono proposes to girlfriend Jennifer Elia while atop the Seattle Space Needle reports TMZ.com.

"It's gorgeous. Thank you so much," Elia says upon being presented with her engagement ring. "It's stunning. It's huge."

"Being Chaz," which airs tonight on OWN at 8pm ET, focuses less on Bono's transition and more on his life, including, as People.com notes, the backlash he encountered when he became the first transgender contestant to compete on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars."

"People feel so angry that Chaz is entering their television," Elia says. "People who make change get shot, and I don't think that's worth it. ... This is insane. It's not worth doing a show if you're going to get shot."

Directly after, OWN presents "I am Jazz: A Family in Transition" about an 11-year-old who is transitioning.
