Chelsea Manning Makes Vogue Debut in Red Swimsuit: 'This Is What Freedom Looks Like'

She posted the photo on Instagram with the caption "guess this is what freedom looks like".

The image was shot by acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz, who also shot Caitlyn Jenner's iconic coming out cover of Vanity Fair.

The former US Army intelligence analyst was sentenced 35 years in prison in 2013 after leaking almost 750,000 classified or sensitive documents to WikiLeaks.

Manning has been lauded as a whistleblower and condemned as a traitor for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified government documents to WikiLeaks in 2010 while still known as Pte.

USA army whistleblower Chelsea Manning is to appear on the cover of next month's Vogue magazine.

In a 2016 piece featured on HuffPost, Manning wrote that she hopes to be "seen and understood as the woman that I actually am - with all of my flaws and eccentricities", instead of through society's narrow lens.

This past January, President Obama commuted the majority of her sentence and she was released from prison May 17. "But I got scared", the 29-year-old transgender former soldier told the mag.

She goes into detail in the interview about growing up trans and says that the army was a way for her to come to terms with it: 'I knew that I was different. While teachers were trying to push her into competitive games with other boys, she said she preferred playing house. She told them she is glad to be free and walking around again and is definitely not living in fear. "I think I spent, like, five or six hours sitting outside". "Why can't I fit in?'" Everyone keeps saying: "'You should have gone through the proper channels!' But the proper channels don't work", Manning said. Today, she says she's learned, "it is OK to be who I am". That took a toll on her mental health-Chelsea attempted suicide multiple times in prison, most recently in October 2016, according to the New York Times.
