How Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, became John Waters' cinematic muse and an international drag icon.
The ultimate outsider-turned-underground-royalty, 'I am Divine' is a biographical portrait that charts the legendary icon's rise from a misfit youth in Baltimore to a cult superstar. This is the definitive biography honouring Divine in a way she always craved: as a serious artist who blurred the line between performer and personality, and revolutionised pop culture.
Featuring rare movie footage, live performances and interviews with John Waters, Ricki Lake, Mink Stole, Tab Hunter, Holly Woodlawn, Michael Musto, Bruce Vilance 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.
