Beneath the Makeup, Above the Heels, and Behind The Scenes with a Cult Superstar.

In a true-life tale as bizarre and incredible as that of any John Waters movie, here is the story of Harris Glenn Milstead, a misfit hairdresser from Baltimore who was determined to do anything to achieve fame, and how through his transformation into the persona of Divine he became the first cross-dressing icon of a generation.

From the early days of PINK FLAMINGOS to the burlesque stages of avant-garde theatre, from the glitter of exclusive nightspots to the brink of universal stardom and his tragic end at the age of 42 from heart failure in a hotel room, this is the unforgettable, roller-coaster story of the world's most outrageous star.
