Spitting in the face of conventional beauty, Divine (1945–1988) was the ultimate outsider-turned-underground royalty, possessing a style blurring the lines between performer and personality. I Am Divine tells the story of Harris Glenn Milstead’s humble beginnings as an overweight, bullied Baltimore youth; his life-altering collaborations with filmmaker John Waters; and his stature as the internationally iconic drag superstar known as Divine.
