Pfc. Bradley Manning, an openly gay U.S. Army intelligence analyst who has admitted to leaking thousands of secret documents published by the website WikiLeaks, is embraced as a hero by some in the LGBT community, but reviled by others who believe that he put the lives of fellow soldiers at risk. Manning's case gained renewed attention recently after San Francisco Pride bestowed and then rescinded the honorific title of grand marshal of the 2013 Pride parade. He will stand trial in a military court in June.
