S.F.'s Pride Marshal: Bradley Manning

S.F.'s Pride Marshal: Bradley Manning


The queer Army intelligence officer won't be able to attend because he's been in prison for three years for his role in the Wikileaks scandal.

Bradley Manning, the LGBT Army intelligence specialist in prison for espionage, will be one of the grand marshals of the San Francisco Pride celebration this summer.

Manning was accused of releasing more than 750,000 documents of various levels of governmental classification through WikiLeaks, saying he was protesting against "don't ask, don't tell" and American foreign policy. Manning's been in jail for three years awaiting trial.

Manning, obviously, won't be able to attend the Pride festivities. "However, Pentagon Papers' whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg will attend in his stead, and hundreds are expected to march in support of PFC Manning in the parade," according to a statement from the Bradley Manning Support Network.
