The affiliated clubs of the ABC offer a social setting where your size or the admiration of big men isn't an issue, merely a pleasant distraction. For some men it's a safe haven to explore for the first time their own desirability. For other men it's an opportunity to explore feelings and emotions that they have kept hidden for fear of ridicule. For others it's just a chance to get together with the men whom they are attracted to. No matter what your personal or interpersonal acceptance may be, there's a very good chance you will find comfort and acceptance with your involvement in one of the Affiliated Big Men's Clubs.

There are lots of names that have been used to describe the relationship between heavyset men and the men who love them that way. "Chubs" and "Chasers" is certainly some of the friendlier, non-threatening monikers we've been given. But, just as with any nickname, as soon as you try to pigeonhole an entire group of men with a few terms, you are missing all the pleasant diversity within that group. If calling us Chubs and Chasers gets you to explore what we have to offer, feel free to use these terms. Most of us are very comfortable with it. Be forewarn though that if you're using these terms to dismiss some of the friendliest, sexiest men in the world as the fetish du jour, you're going to miss out on a whole lot more than you realize.

Girth and Mirth clubs started in California in the 1970s by a gentleman by the name of Charlie Brown. He is a chaser who loved chubbies and decided some members of the gay community needed a club so that Chubbies and Chasers had a place to meet and socialize without fear of abuse. The movement grew with clubs in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.
In 1986 it was decided that a national meeting should be held. It was held on Labor Day weekend and I believe it was in San Francisco. At that meeting, it was decided that the Convention should be called Convergence and a national board of Girth and Mirth clubs was formed and was called the Affiliated Big Mens Clubs. This board to this day does national advertising and awards the Convergence and regional Conferences that many Girth and Mirth clubs handle for the membership.
