1. How and when did you become a Pin-Up Model?

I have always loved old Hollywood and the ideals of the 50’s. I have always liked to make an effort in the way that I dress and present myself. Not for anyone else, just for me. I think that is the best way to do anything…for yourself.

I started modelling about ‘cough’ years ago. I had been asked to model a range of vintage swimwear through a friend of a friend and it just went from there. I don’t model so much now unless the concept really interests me. Read More

Barry and Josef Church-Woods

5 minutes with Barry Church-Woods – Venues & Companies Manager at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Co Founder of The Big C and LGBTicons.com


Barry Church-WoodsBarry Church-Woods is an accomplished project manager, a successful blogger, a passionate self starter and a campaigner for equality.

1. What do you love most about working for Edinburgh Festival Fringe?

I travel quite a lot with the Fringe Society to let people know what it’s all about and how to take part. A couple of days before previews there’s a moment when the noise outside changes. When you can hear the drag of suitcases and sets as the acts arrive, ready for their set up and tech rehearsals. That’s the bit I absolutely love. When it’s all about to happen and the artists are here. Each year I get to support so many brilliantly inspiring creatives. Mad, funny, tortured and ambitions, all bringing their work to the largest arts market on the planet. They make the Fringe happen. They turn our tiny city into the cultural centre of the universe for 25 days in August.

I’m actually leaving the Fringe Society to run Civil Disobedience in a couple of months. I’ll be producing on the Fringe, so hopefully I can still experience it in all its brilliance – just from the other side.
