In a swimsuit photo shoot for the magazine, the 29-year-old trans star is seen smiling while flaunting her slim figure in a red one-piece.
“Guess this is what freedom looks like,” she captioned the snap.
Now free, Manning just recently attended her first A-lister party. Vogue followed the now celebrity hero, as she smiled in awe at the glitz and glam that she had missed during her time in the army and in jail.
“I missed seven years of fashion, but I went through every season in a magazine!” she gleefully said when entering the fashionable party in a red couture gown.
About being trans, she said: “I spent so much time wondering, What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I fit in?”
Now it seems, she’s feeling better than ever.
“It feels natural. It feels like it’s how it’s supposed to be, instead of this anxiety, this uncertainty, this ball of self-consciousness that comes with pretending to be male,” she added. “It didn’t feel right. I didn’t know what it was. I couldn’t describe it. Now that’s gone.”
