A Philadelphia native; Black polyamorous community organizer, activist and educator Cherí "Goddess Chamomile" Calico Roman grew up in a community where plural relationships were rooted in marriage and
Having identified as Queer and non-monogamous since the age of 12; Cheri was able to
separate her relational preferences from religious dogma and discovered the black polyamorous
community by way of social media in 2011. She quickly became well known for her candid commentary on dating couples who were new to “opening up” and the self-journey that is at the root of polyamory.
Since then she has co-founded the Poly Cultural Diversity Alliance along with its
cornerstone events; Black Poly Pride (the first pride event to center the black Polyam
experience and the intersections within the LGBTQIA and Kink community) and the virtual event
“Are Black People Allowed?: A Series of Conversations” born from the lack of black
representation at pandemic driven virtual events, munches and conferences.
Cheri is always looking to serve her community and is also the creator of Intuit: By Design a
consulting firm that utilizes her intuitive gifts, business acumen and her studies of Astrology &
Human Design to assist others in unapologetically aligning with their best lives.
Cheri’s so-called-Polyamorous life is deeply enriched by her relationships with her polycule that
consists of 5 girlfriends/life partners and her D/s dynamic with her Sir (Sir Jaxx) and sister in
service Bambi aka Nikki Glaze.
