Chand, 23, told The Indian Express on Sunday she was in a relationship with a woman from her village in eastern Odisha state, saying she got the courage to come out after India’s top court scrapped a colonial-era ban on gay sex last year.

She said, “I have found someone who is my soulmate. I believe everyone should have the freedom to be with whoever they decide they want to be with.

“I’ve always supported the rights of those who want to be in a same-sex relationship. It is an individual person’s choice.”
