I Am Divine celebrates the life and career of movie star Divine who rose from the underground of Baltimore’s misfit youth to become an international film, stage, music and drag superstar, and died tragically the night before he was due on set to begin a recurring role on a hit television show – as a man. With I Am Divine, tonight’s guest, Director Jeffrey Schwarz has created a film that honors Divine in just the way he always craved — as a serious artist and immortal star.

I Am Divine chronicles the life of Divine from his Baltimore childhood as Harris Glenn Milstead through his years as John Waters’ muse and star, as he reaches his ultimate goal to achieve mainstream acceptance and global recognition. This is a movie about believing in yourself and  accepting yourself, two things Divine exuded and brought to his fans.
