Description: This 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.This film is a definitive biographical portrait that charts the legendary icon's rise to infamy and emotional complexities.
