A graduate in International Journalism, Gerry describes his performance poetry as searing bullets of truth, which he delivers with a sometimes brutal, but always beautiful honesty. His writing is influenced by his mixed African/Caribbean heritage and his experiences growing up on a suburban council estate in Liverpool. Since his debut performance on Liverpool’s poetry/spoken word scene four years ago, Gerry has developed into an accomplished performer who isn’t afraid to tackle issues of local, national and international politics, race, gender and sexuality.
