UK is looking at processing asylum claims overseas, No 10 suggests
No 10 says it is ‘looking at what other countries do’, in response to question about Australian systemDowning Street has effectively confirmed it is looking at the idea of an Australian-style asylum system where all claimants would be processed in camps outside the UK, saying it is examining what other countries do to deter unofficial sea crossings.Asked about a plan, first reported by the Financial Times, to potentially ship asylum seekers to the South Atlantic for processing, No 10 played down the destination, but did not dispute the idea of overseas processing centres.

Saunas, sex clubs and street fights: how Sunil Gupta captured global gay life – and Miss UK
From the treacherous ‘sex trucks’ of New York to the grim days of Aids and Clause 28 in Britain, Sunil Gupta had a ringside seat at the fight for gay liberation. At last, the Zelig-like photographer is getting his duesSunil Gupta can remember the names the white schoolkids called each other when he arrivsunisunil l guptaed in Montreal in the late 1960s, having moved there from Delhi. “There were Greeks and Italians,” he says over a cup of tea in his loft-like apartment and workspace in London. “People used very pejorative terms freely. I learned the whole vocabulary.” His fellow pupils, however, did not yet have the words to describe Gupta. “They had never heard of India. My ‘baggage’ was useless.”He also recalls his first boyfriend. “This American boy: blond hair, blue-eyed, Irish, from Wisconsin.” He didn’t know much about Indians, says Gupta, “but he was very knowledgeable about the streets.” Again, Gupta hadn’t the terminology for what they did together. “I’d been very sexually active since as far back as I can remember,” he explains. “In large Indian families, there is a very strict formality on the surface, but underneath everything goes. There were boys in the neighbourhood, but it didn’t have a name. Besides, my future was laid out: at the right age, your mum and dad found you a spouse.” Continue reading...

Miss Virginia review – shallow biopic fails to do its subject justice
Uzo Aduba has all the talent to play activist Virginia Walden gets but is let down a script uninterested in the issues it depictsUzo Aduba has just picked up a well-deserved Emmy for playing the pioneering African American congresswoman Shirley Chisholm in Mrs America. Now she is on the other side of Washington DC, as the struggling single parent turned education reform activist Virginia Walden.In early scenes, Virginia drags her weary frame through school metal detectors to urgent parent-teacher conferences about her 15-year-old son. Then it’s on to meetings with the bank to plead for loans to pay for private school and her second job cleaning toilets at a congresswoman’s office. On the horizon, the Capitol dome gleams, contrasting with crumbling, graffitied buildings of Walden’s neighbourhood, a simplistic shorthand for DC’s notorious inequalities. The cliched choreography of a school-bully fight scene – they round on the class nerd and trample his glasses – is also typical of this film’s surface-skimming depiction of social problems.

Leaders prepare to discuss the destruction of the natural world as the international community negotiates a set of targets for the next decadeAll eyes on China: what to look out for at the UN biodiversity summit 1.44pm BST Good afternoon, I’m Patrick Greenfield, a biodiversity and environment reporter at the Guardian. Alongside my colleague Phoebe Weston, I’ll be live blogging proceedings from a first-of-its-kind summit at the UN in New York, where world leaders will discuss the rampant destruction of the natural world.
