Devine posterI love John Waters. Who doesn’t? Divine and John Waters were like foot and shoe or you know, hand in (rubber) glove – I could go on and on – until Harris Glenn Milstead aka she they call Divine sadly passed on. This film about Divine’s life needs to see the light of day, so what a great honour that we, the general public, have to help it out on its path to glory.

I AM DIVINE will be a definitive biographical portrait of Harris Glenn Milstead, aka Divine, and will honor him in just the way he always craved – as a serious artist and immortal star. We’ll tell Divine’s entire story, from his early days as a misfit youth in Baltimore through his rise to infamy as a cult superstar. Like the characters he portrayed in numerous films, Divine was the ultimate outsider. He transformed himself from a bullied schoolyard fat kid to a larger than life personality and underdog royalty as his alter-ego Divine. Divine stood up for millions of gay men and women, female impersonators, punk rockers, the ample figured, and countless other socially ostracized people. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality and revolutionized pop culture.
