On August 16, 2016, NBC OUT removed a report with an interview of Olympian Dutee Chand that was published to our site on August 10, 2016. Our intention in publishing the original article, which included LGBTQ-specific questions, was to highlight the achievements of an Olympic athlete who had been identified in numerous other publications as LGBTQ. Subsequently, a representative of the athlete contacted us to clarify that Chand has “never ‘come out’ as anything and does not identify as LGBTQ.”

Though we stand by our reporting, as a courtesy to the athlete, we have removed the report.
