I Am Divine is the story of Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, from his humble beginnings as an overweight Baltimore youth to internationally recognised drag superstar through his collaboration with John Waters. They met at age 17, did drugs, made drag and made fun of Jackie Kennedy. Spitting in the face of the status quos of body image, gender identity, sexuality, and preconceived notions of beauty, Divine was the ultimate outsider turned underground royalty. He blurred the line between performer and personality, and revolutionised pop culture. I Am Divine is a definitive biographical portrait that charts the legendary icon’s rise to infamy and his emotional complexities.
