Beard Liberation Front backs Labour to win General Election

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, which campaigns for people to be able to dress and appear as they want, has said it has taken the unusual step of backing the Labour Party for the General Election on June 8th.

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.

The Beard Liberation Front does not normally back a particular party. However faced with an Election where neither the Tories or LibDems have shown any signs of being beard friendly, while Labour is led by Jeremy Corbyn, multiple winner of the Parliamentary Beard of the Year Award, the campaigners say it is time to take sides.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett, we trust Jeremy Corbyn to take positive action on the Beard Friendly Charter, after so many years promoting the cause of the hirsute in the Commons.

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
