Divine. Just Because.

October 31, 2014

I love October. Not only is it the month of Halloween (my favorite religious holiday), but it is also the month of Divine’s birth (Oct. 19th is the special day, Happy Belated, Beautiful!). Divine was not only independent filmmaker John Waters’s muse, but they grew up together in Baltimore: both outsiders, both fabulous. In fact, Waters is the one who gave Divine his moniker. Waters also called Divine "the most beautiful woman in the world, almost.” David Hockney painted him, Anthony Friedkin photographed him, Andy Warhol interviewed him. Enjoy!
