Manning on Sunday rode on the American Civil Liberties Union float in New York City alongside Gavin Grimm, a transgender teen who sued his school for not allowing him to use the boys’ restroom. The ACLU shared a photo of Manning on Twitter standing on a float behind a rainbow-colored heart.
In 2013 Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison after leaking more than 700,000 classified and unclassified documents to WikiLeaks. She served only seven years when former President Barack Obama decided to commute her sentence in January.
Manning shared her own photo on Twitter, saying that she lost her voice “from screaming so much.” People across Twitter sent her love to mark the occasion.
You're radiant, @xychelsea! ❤️💛💚💙💜💖— Free Chelsea Manning Forever (@InspiraExspira) June 25, 2017
This was not Manning’s first Pride, but it was her first as a free woman—it likely won’t be her last.
