I Am Divine

I Am Divine is a definitive biographical portrait of Harris Glenn Milstead, a.k.a. Divine, and honors him in just the way he always craved: as a serious artist and immortal star. Divine's entire story is told, from his early days as a misfit youth in Baltimore through his rise to infamy as a cult superstar. Like the characters he portrayed in numerous films, Divine was the ultimate outsider.

He transformed himself from a bullied schoolyard fat kid to a larger-than-life personality and underdog royalty as his alter-ego Divine. Divine stood up for millions of gay men and women, female impersonators, punk rockers, the ample figured, and countless other socially ostracized people. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality and revolutionized pop culture.

Deze documentaire biedt een caleidoscopische blik op Glenn alias Divine aan de hand van getuigenissen van wie deze drag queen gekend, bewonderd en liefgehad heeft, maar ook van interviews met Divine zelf. De complexe persoonlijkheid van Divine sleurt je mee in een wervelwind van succes, twijfels, rancune, verzoening en heel veel viezigheid.​
