Facebook | @GerryPoetry

Gerry Potter is a poet, playwright, director, actor, and both creator and destroyer of the infamous gingham diva, Chloe Poems. A favourite son of Manchester and his home town Liverpool, he trained at Everyman Youth Theatre and National Museums Liverpool lists him among the city's leading LGBTQ+ icons. His published works are included in both the poetry and philosophy collections at Harvard University, and the portrait documentary My Name is Gerry Potter [Dir. Alejandro Negueruela / Prod. Mike Carney] premiered at Homotopia in 2015. Gerry has a reputation for putting his Scouse voice on the line, and is strong on poetry and strong on the causes of poetryism.

A new collection from Gerry is coming soon...

LGBTQ+ icon Gerry Potter reads from Planet Middle Age, his second collection of autobiographical, domestic/fantastic theatre-verse published by Flapjack Press in 2010. His ninth collection will be published in 2021.
