BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Chelsea Manning, the transgender soldier convicted of giving classified government materials to WikiLeaks, was released from Fort Leavenworth in May.

Since then, she’s been very active on social media, sharing everything from a photo of herself at White House protest to her new Social Security card that reflects her female identity.
