A true Gentleman always knows when to say 'thanks', and no great journey is ever made alone. In recognition of these principles, here is a short (and incomplete) list of the people, organizations and entities who helped us get to where we are today. From the bottom of our lowest whisker, thank you.
Gem City Gems of the Whiskerina Society
They say that behind every great man is a great woman, and they're usually right. We Gentlemen are very lucky, because beside our great club is another great club, our women's contingent, the Gem City Gems.
Gem City Fake Mustache Society
When we met these fine ladies and gentlemen at our first annual BMC, we couldn't believe they had slipped under our radar for so long. Now, we make up for lost time by frequently collaborating on hirsute hijinks of all sorts. So, if you live in or around Dayton and have moustache envy, you know who to call.
Many folks we've met have reacted with disbelief when told of the existence of a national ladies' fake beard club. Well, we're here to tell you that they exist, they're organized, and they're here to stay. So ladies, don't think you need to have a bearded man in your life (though we can recommend a few) to join our blossoming community. Join The Whiskerinas and let it grow!
Beard Team USA
Beard Team USA organizes the annual National Beard and Moustache Championships, represents the United States at international beard and moustache competitions, and through its network of over 50 local chapters, (including the Gents) promotes the appreciation of facial hair nationwide.
Queen City Beard and Moustache Society
About 50 miles south of us Gentlemen, the Queen City Beard and Moustache Society is Cincinnati's chapter of Beard Team USA, and an awesome group of men and women.
Great American Fierce Beard Organization
Our little sisters to the north (zing!), GAFBO have been loyal supporters and a thorn in our side since day one. Without their perspective, enthusiasm, and feeble attempts to slander our name (thus bolstering the reputation of their pitiful home of Michigan — double zing!), we would not be what we are today. In GAFBO, we are cursed with the burden of a formidable nemesis, and blessed with the gift of dear friends. Also, Michigan sucks.
Beard Team Ohio
A collaborative effort of all of Ohio's facial hair clubs, Beard Team Ohio exists to build camaraderie amongst, and pool the resources of, Ohio's beardsmen in order to spread a unified message across our great state. We hope one day to be big and powerful enough to annex Michigan, thus absorbing it's beard talent into our own. Because it works that way.
