Chelsea Manning posts first photo of herself after release from prison

After serving seven years in a military prison for men despite being a woman, Chelsea Manning is free. She was released Wednesday and opened up an Instagram account soon after. Over the past 24 hours, she has gained about 29,000 follows (and counting) and posted pictures of a handful of firsts: steps of freedom, a slice of pizza, a glass of champagne, and her latest look. Yup, Manning posted a portrait of herself — and she looks lovely. Manning's lengthy sentence was commuted by President Obama after she sent him a letter in which she pled for freedom, citing terrible conditions and constant solitary confinement.
