WATCH: Male models and bodily fluids abound in this Palme d’Or-winning social satire

that‘s how you promote a movie!The trailer for Ruben Östlund’s dark social satire, Triangle Of Sadness, has us hooked from the first frame: A shirtless Harris Dickinson (Beach Rats, Matthias & Maxime) saunters in and joins a group of other strapping male models for an audition, leading to a hilarious bit about modeling for a grumpy brand versus a smiley brand.But it’s all, appropriately, a bit of a bait-and-switch. This isn’t just a comedy about the high-end fashion world—it’s a wicked takedown of the wealthy elite.

Pride Month: Plight of LGBTQ+ refugees in Sweden highlighted in new billboard campaign
LGBTQ+ if you’ve had to hide it your whole life?A new campaign by West Pride, an annual event held in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden, aims to highlight the problems posed by this very question.“Letting an arbitrary process decide if LGBTQ+ refugees are approved asylum or not is inhumane,” says Emma Gunterberg Sachs, General Manager of West Pride.West Pride have teamed up with design company AKQA to create a billboard and social media campaign which highlights the plight of LGBTQ+ refugees caught up in the Swedish immigration system.Each billboard will feature an anonymous refugee and share their story, telling the journeys of six asylum seekers this Pride Month.“Far too many are wrongly sent back to a lifetime of persecution, imprisonment or death. We need to stop this now,” says Gunterberg Sachs.When the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights did a report on LGBTQ+ asylum seekers in 2017, no member state was able to provide official figures on the numbers entering the country.Nations that could provide estimates did so through civil organisations with the Netherlands estimating between 100 -1000 and Denmark given 70.There have been widespread reports of LGBTQ+ refugees from the Middle East and West Africa reaching Europe in the hopes of a better life, only to be asked for proof of their sexuality in the tolerant countries they are going to for sanctuary. West Pride has given their Ambassadors of Pride official roles in an effort to give their asylum claims legitimacy.

LGBTI asylum seekers facing 'double discrimination' across Europe, warns report
The situation for LGBTI asylum seekers in a number of European countries is fraught with difficulties with many facing double discrimination, a new report has warned.They face "specific difficulties and injustice" even in countries that rank high for positive LGBT legislative change, according to an annual review by the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA).ILGA-Europe says LGBTI asylum seekers face double discrimination in Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Malta, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK.In Denmark, activists have documented cases of trans asylum seekers without access to trans-specific healthcare or being harassed, while NGOs in Spain have warned of the underreporting of discrimination and violence that LGBTI asylum seekers endure, and a lack of access to social and healthcare services.Germany was flagged for "the unsafe practice of conducting investigations of asylum seekers in their home countries and outing them".Several countries including France, Malta and Greece were decried for adding nations -- thought by some as being unsafe for LGBTI people -- to their list of "safe countries" that asylum seekers could be sent back to if their applications were unsuccessful.Greece now considers Turkey safe for LGBTI asylum seekers to be sent back to, but ILGA-Europe ranks the country as among the three worst countries in Europe for LGBTI rights and protection.France's Council of State, which acts as a supreme court for administrative justice, ruled in March that LGBTQI+ asylum seekers coming from a country that criminalises or persecutes LGBTQI+ people, should not be automatically given refugee status.Malta and Sweden were meanwhile flagged for new
