About Dutee Chand

India’s first openly gay athlete is running her way into the record books, history books and heart of millions of people around the world. Dutee Chand made waves, headlines and then some in 2019 for her bravery and refusal to be anyone other than herself. While winning races and setting personal records, Dutee also managed to break down barriers for LGBTQ athletes everywhere, earning her 55K+ Instagram followers and a spot on the Time 100 Next list last year. 2020 is set to be another huge year for the racer, as she qualified for the Tokyo Olympics where she’ll no doubt continue to turn heads on the international stage.
