India's shinning star and first openly gay athlete is Cosmopolitan's cover girl for July.
Make way for Golden Girl Dutee Chand who looks like a ray of sunshine on Cosmopolitan India's mag cover.
The ace Indian sprinter poses with a rainbow cape by Namrata Joshipura, lending her support to the LGBT community.
Dressed in a sports bra and matching shorts, Dutee goes candid in a make up free look, sporting zero accessories.
'So excited to have Dutee Chand on the digital cover of @cosmoindia July 2019,' wrote Nandini Bhalla, Editor, Cosmopolitan India, as she unveiled the cover on her Instagram page.
'At a time when we're discussing women's empowerment and LGBTQIA+ rights, Dutee is a shining beacon of hope, courage, and grit.
'There's no doubt that she's one of India's finest athletes, but she is also a braveheart -- a champion who has fought the odds and is unafraid to speak her mind.
'Whether it's training for championships or fighting social stigma, Dutee tackles challenges head-on, and doesn't believe in living with regrets. More in this month's issue of Cosmopolitan India.'
