XY Chelsea

Soldier, trans woman and prisoner – Chelsea Manning has launched an appeal against the US Military, challenging a 35 year sentence given after she leaked almost 700,000 US military and diplomatic documents. She is also undergoing Hormone Replacement Therapy, transitioning to the female gender she has identified with all her life. This appeal is a fight for Chelsea’s identity: her character, her integrity, and her psychology. Told from Chelsea’s perspective, XY Chelsea will provide a unique view of one of the most important stories of the 21st century and an ongoing trial that has implications for us all.
