Synopsis
Chubby Harris Glenn Milstead had always liked musicals, feminine pursuits and privately played "dress-up games" in his mother's clothes. After meeting a crowd of gay hipsters and freaks, Glenn began camping it up and met the man who was about to change his life - John Waters. Both obsessed with movies, they bonded over the films of Russ Meyer and Jayne Mansfield, and began to forge a new character who mocked the conventional "pretty" drag queens who aspired to look as real as possible. She was outrageous, outlandish and obviously overweight. Glenn's wicked, rebellious side matched the sensibilities of Waters who christened his new star "Divine" and they started making films together.
