Part of: THIS WEEKEND: Storyhouse Women


With an introduction by Kate Hutchinson, Regional Officer Diversity Role Models

Director: Tim Travers Hawkins
Starring: Chelsea Manning, Chase Strangio, Kojo Nnamdi

After instigating the largest leak of secrets in US history – when she disclosed 750,000 documents to Wikileaks – ex-soldier and trans woman Chelsea Manning was supposed to spend most of the rest of her life behind bars in an all-male military prison. But on January 17 2017, President Barack Obama commuted her sentence, in an unprecedented and controversial move that divided the United States and the world.

XY Chelsea is an intimate character portrait of a fascinating, unique and complex woman.
