Directed by Jeffrey Schwarz | 2013

With John Waters, Ricki Lake

"Enjoyably naughty… uncovers the lovable man behind the cross-dressing John Waters muse and pop star..."
—The Hollywood Reporter

This new documentary charts how Harris Glenn Milstead, a chubby misunderstood gay teen from Baltimore, transformed himself into cult icon Divine, John Waters’ muse and the star of Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, and Hairspray. Through interviews with Divine’s collaborators and friends (including the ever-entertaining Waters, Ricki Lake, Tab Hunter, and Mink Stole), I Am Divine shows how Milstead’s brash, boldly confrontational style broke barriers and gave a voice to outcasts everywhere.
