Campaigners set to re-launch For a Beard Friendly Britain Election Manifesto

The Beard Liberation Front is an informal network of beard wearers and welcomes supporters, both women and men, who agree with our core principles.

It is not party political and does not stand candidates in Elections. However it is political in a broader sense, as it seeks a less discriminatory and more beard friendly Britain.

Founded in 1995 it campaigns against prejudice and celebrates positive images of the hirsute with an annual Beard of the Year award at the end of December. Beard Week, which focuses on a range of beard related issues, takes place every year in late June.

To this end it will be producing an updated version of its Election Manifesto on which it will seek the views of candidates and will publicise those who sign up to its Beard Friendly Charter.

The campaigners say they are also considering re-launching the Beardies & Baldies Election Alliance

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, we intend to make beards an Election issue and to raise particularly the need to address Pogonophobic Britain and the discriminatory practices that are currently widespread.

The Beard Friendly Charter (Summary)

No to Beardism and pogonophobia prejudice against the hirsute

More hirsute MPs

More hirsute public employees and monitoring of hirsuteness levels in the senior Civil Service

Promotion of positive public images of the hirsute

No dress codes at work, beyond a requirement for smart appearance for public facing roles
