Trans Women Tweet Their Shoes To Support Chelsea Manning's Prison Release

By Mark Pygas

Chelsea Manning was released yesterday after a commutation by President Obama in the final months of his presidency. Manning, who has identified as female since childhood, was sentenced in 2013 after she leaked information to Wikileaks, including details about airstrikes that led to civilian casualties. After being sentenced, Manning requested that she be allowed to go through hormone replacement therapy while imprisoned.  

Manning took to Instagram to share her first day of freedom, which included pizza and champagne. 

So, im already enjoying my first hot, greasy pizza πŸ˜‹
