It’s Chelsea Manning From Now On in The Times

The Times will begin immediately to call the former Bradley Manning by her preferred name – Chelsea Manning.

An e-mail on Monday night from Susan Wessling, the deputy editor who supervises the copy desk, to newsroom editors said:

“Starting tomorrow, we will move to a new formulation:

… Chelsea Manning, formerly known as Pfc. Bradley Manning…

‘Private Manning’ on later references, and ‘she’ for the pronoun.”

Just so it mentions his/her beef Stroganoff recipe in the obit.
