Chloe Poems


‘Hello, my name is Chloe Poems. I’m a gay, socialist transvestite, and that’s as close to compromise as I get.’

Chloe Poems is a gingham clad performance poet who has been battling against hypocrisy for a considerable number of years now. A veteran of cabaret and poetry circuits, Chloe has published a number of books, including I Am Kamp and Universal Rentboy, and has made a series of recordings with Switchflicker Records. Route published Chloe’s Adult Entertainment collection, complete with a live recording, in June 2002.

Chloe Poems is the creation of writer, actor and director Gerry Potter.
