India’s first open gay athlete is on the digital cover of Danti Chand Fashion magazine

In May, Springer Dune became the first Indian sports star to accept that she was in a similar sexual relationship. The 100-meter national record holder and two silver medalist in the 2018 Asian Games said that he talked about his same gender relation after the historical decision to reduce Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code last year. And now she is on the cover of the digital edition of the magazine Cosmopolitan India for the July issue.

Styled by Zunali Malik, Chand is wearing a SuperDrio Sports Bra, a shorts from Nilita and Namrata Joshipura is a cape in which there are all colors of the rainbow flag.


Hair and make-up by Maniyasha were minimal in nature, in which the only thing of Highlighter on the athlete’s cheeks was touch.
Chand received praise and support for speaking about same sex relations in India and abroad.


She is not the first Indian woman sports star to come on the cover of any magazine. In 2016, Badminton winner PV Sindhu made jaw drops with his photo shoot for women’s magazine, Just for Woman (JFW).

The athlete was seen wearing a cut-out gray lace dress with a nude pump. The make-up was also accompanied by the glow of dew, and with the smoky eyes in the colors of Burgundy. But more than anything else, it was a 100-watt smile that made her perfect.
