Chelsea Manning, the former U.S. Army soldier behind the 2010 leak of classified data, was fortunate enough to have her sentence commuted by former president Obama back in May, despite her heinous crime.
Since then, Manning has wasted no time in contributing to the “resist” movement being put on my anti-Trump activists.
On Sunday, she participated in her first LGBT pride march since being released from prison. She represented the American Civil Liberties Union at the New York City parade and was spotted riding in a red convertible next to Gavin Grimm, a transgender teen whose lawsuit over a school bathroom was remanded by the Supreme Court.
Manning, 29, tweeted the following about the event, which was loaded with “resist” captioned signs and banners: “honored to represent the @ACLU at this years @NYCPrideMarch lost my voice from screaming so much thank you http://bit.ly/2tazCdS,” Manning tweeted.
Manning was convicted by court-martial for violating the Espionage Act after leaking the largest-ever number of classified documents to WikiLeaks in 2013. That same year, she identified as transgender.
