I Am Divine is a story about how Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, became John Waters' cinematic muse and an international drag icon. He was a man who fought against what society considers conventionally beautiful. It’s about addiction. It’s about fame. It’s about the quest for the spotlight and artistic respect. Divine’s complete commitment to being and expressing himself perhaps did more to promote notions of freedom and acceptance than he knew. He certainly paved the way for legions of misfits to come.
