In a country, too, where even the limited conversations the public has had about the LGBTQI community have been restricted to gay men, Dutee has opened up new avenues of discussion

The Asian Athletics Championship is scheduled to be held in Doha, Qatar, from 21 April to 24 April. The event will feature a number of athletes from 63 participating countries, including a number of nations from Oceania. The Indian contingent will be hoping to build on its immensely successful performance in the 2017 edition of the Asian Athletics Championships held in Bhubaneswar, where they finished atop the medal tally with an impressive haul of 29 medals, outdoing favourites China by a considerable margin.

The Athletics Federation of India announced a provisional squad of 51 players on 19 March, which featured a number of well-known names like Neeraj Chopra, Jinson Johnson, Dutee Chand, Hima Das, Swapna Barman and Mohammed Anas Yahiya. Unfortunately, Indian poster-boy Neeraj Chopra is set to miss out on the tournament after spraining his elbow and his place in the javelin throw is to be taken by the recently-acquitted Davinder Singh Kang.

The Indian contingent will be lacking a couple of members, with men's 400m hurdles national record holder Dharun Ayyasamy and Asian Games 800m gold winner Manjit Singh missing the tournament through injury, while Sudha Singh (women's 3000m steeplechase) failed to turn up for trials due to illness.
