I Am Divine is the story of Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, from his humble beginnings as a bullied and teased youth from Baltimore to internationally recognised drag superstar through his collaboration with filmmaker John Waters. Spitting in the face of status quos of body image, gender identity, sexuality and preconceived notions of beauty, Divine was the ultimate outsider turned underground royalty. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality, and revolutionised pop culture.
Featuring rare movie footage, live performances and with brand new interviews with Hairspray and Polyester director John Waters, actors Ricki Lake and Tab Hunter, and Divine’s mother Frances Milstead (who provided her final interview just months before she passed away) in addition to many more of Divine’s family, friends, colleagues and forever indebted devotees, this is the definitive biography honouring Divine in a way he always craved: as a serious artist and immortal star.
