For the president of a club about men's facial hair, Richie Darling is actually quite the feminist.
St. Louis Beard and Mustache Club Richie Darling founded the St. Louis Beard and Mustache Club almost a year ago.
"To hold office and vote on important club things, you have to have facial hair, which makes it a men's club by default," admits Darling, founder of the St. Louis Beard and Mustache Club."But I like to be inclusive as a leader. I don't want to be exclusive."
To even out the gender imbalance, the club is holding a fundraiser, the Facial Hair Competition, this weekend at Llywelyn's Pub in Webster Groves and donating the proceeds to the Covering House, a shelter for girls who are victims of human trafficking.
