tali 24 november
Hailey Tuck Born in Austin, Texas, and now based between London and Paris, Hailey Tuck was raised on a diet of 1930’s jazz, vintage dresses and black & white movies. Her love of the ‘old school’ saw her move to France aged just 18 in search of la vie en rose. Dressed straight out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, with a uniquely captivating voice that sits somewhere between Billie Holiday, Regina Spektor and Ella Fitzgerald, Hailey enchants her audience with classics such as My Funny Valentine, but also surprises with her unique take on tracks like The Zombies’ Tell Him No and Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice. Hailey invites the listener to take a step into a timeless world of midnight shows and late night parties, evoking her very own 21st Century Belle Époqu Films and shows can be booked online at http://www.taliesinartscentre.co.uk/index.php

Research Study- Participants needed – Body image issues in lesbians: An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis

body image women

I am a MSc student studying Psychology and looking for volunteers for a piece of research I am conducting regarding lesbian women and their attitudes towards body image. Current research in this area tells us very little about the views of lesbian women, and theories seem to be outdated in regards to current societal attitudes towards homosexuality. I plan to interview participants in order to represent their views on the subject and to try and amend some of these outdated theories to provide a more comprehensive look at this topic If you require any additional information
