Bradley Manning says he plans to live as a woman and begin hormone therapy, a day after the soldier was sentenced to 35 years in prison for sending classified information to WikiLeaks.
In a written statement provided to NBC's "Today" show on Thursday morning, Manning said he planned to live as a woman named Chelsea.
A military judge announced the sentence in Manning's court-martial on Wednesday.
Manning's struggle with gender identity disorder -- his sense that he was a man trapped in a woman's body -- was a key part of his defense.
Attorneys had presented evidence of Manning's struggle with gender identity, including a photo of the soldier in a blonde wig and lipstick that he sent to a therapist.
