Divine in the video for “You Think You’re A Man”

It’s still somewhat shocking to realize that Harris Glenn Milstead, better known as drag performer Divine, died at the age of just 42. He suffered a heart attack in 1988. 

Divine was a star of the underground movie circuit from the late 1960s onwards thanks to his work with friend and fellow Baltimore resident John Waters. He was also known for his club hits, such as 1984’s thundering “You Think You’re A Man.”

Milstead developed an interest in wigs and dressing up while still a teenager working in a Baltimore hair salon. He threw himself into the city’s late-60s counterculture and befriended Waters, who suggested the name “Divine.” 

Their first short movies together were Roman Candles
