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 hometown Liverpool, he trained at Everyman Youth Theatre and National Museums Liverpool lists him among the city's leading LGBTQ+ icons. The portrait documentary My Name is Gerry Potter premiered at Homotopia in 2015 and Gerry's published works are included in both the poetry and philosophy collections at Harvard University. He has a reputation for putting his Scouse voice on the line and is strong on poetry and strong on the causes of poetryism.

His debut collection as 'himself', Planet Young, was Sophie Willan's chosen book on the second series of BBC TV's Between the Covers.

Coming soon: Gerry Potter's Li'l Book o' Small Poems & 6A Blackstock Gardens.
