Dutee Chand is the first Indian sportsperson to come out openly as gay.

As soon as the news surfaced on social media, people started abusing and criticising Dutee. And as expected the regional media rushed to her house to get a ‘breaking news’ for their TRP revealing almost every details.

But more than her critics, it is the celebrities, activists and journalists
who supported Dutee and applauded her move stating she has the right to live her life the way she wants it.

A few years back, she successfully moved the Court of Arbitration of Sports (CAS) against the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) rules on hyperandrogenism, which put a limit on testosterone levels of women competing in track and field events.

The rules were withdrawn in 2018 and that same year Chand won two silver medals at the Asian Games. Her 100m silver was India’s first at the Asiad in 32 years, while her 200m silver was the country’s first in 16.
