Happy Birthday, Divine!
Divine was born in Baltimore on October 19th.
Divine is one of the best known of the Greats instrumental in the popularizing of the queer movement of the late 20th Century in the United States. The creative friendship with the film maker John Water was open the fieldto set the standard for the generations that followed.
Divine perfected and embodied moral outrage and shock as a conscious tool in creative rebellion, though tellingly enough, the private persona behind the bold figure “Divine” is reputed to have been soft-spoken, kind and reserved.
