And U.S. Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning on Thursday tweeted the first photo of her new look as a free woman—after serving seven years in men’s-only Army prisons. The photo shows Manning wearing a black top, lipstick and mascara, with the caption, “Okay, so here I am everyone!” and the hashtag #HelloWorld. While in custody, Manning spent years battling the Pentagon for the right to transition to a woman, winning the right to hormone therapy treatment in early 2015. Although President Obama in January commuted her 35-year prison sentence, Manning is the longest-held whistleblower in U.S. history.
