XY CHELSEA

FRIDAY, MAY 3RD, 6:00PM

Q & A with members of the ACLU of Oregon to follow screening.


Former US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, a trans woman and whistleblower, made headlines in 2010 after disclosing thousands of government documents to WikiLeaks. After serving seven years in military prison her 35-year sentence was commuted. In this exclusive look at her 'life as a coming-of-age story,' Chelsea adjusts to a whole new world: Trump's America. Supported by friends, lawyers and loved ones, she jumps back into activism and politics, advocating for government transparency and transgender rights, even running for the US Senate. Finding her footing amidst alt-right rhetoric and escalating threats to her community, maintaining her signature perseverance while learning to better protect herself as a public figure, and coming to terms with her past in order to face her future takes new resolve as she moves into uncharted territory.
