Divine. The documentary.


Divine decadence, darling!

We cannot bring you details of the entire programme of the London Lesbean and Gay Film Festival right here right now because the launch (with sparkling wines and cakes from Konditer & Cook always a highlight) is not until next Tuesday (come back here Wednesday: we may be reporters but we will not be logging on for up-to-the-minute news after some sparkling wines and cake, and that’s for sure). What we can tell you is that the opening gala film is a humdinger.

And it is *drums fingers on desk in approximation of a drumroll* I Am Divine, a documentary about the life and misdemeanours of one Harris Glen Milstead, known better as Divine. Divine, for those (pretending to be) too young to remember him/her was an actor/actress, singer, phenomenon who shocked, appalled and amused in films like Pink Flamingos, Hairspray and Desperate Living.

Add some jaunty gay singles like You Think You’re A Man (But You’re Only A Boy) and some extraordinary performances (riding an elephant at a West End gay club, for instance) and we think you have enough material for a fairly brilliant documentary. The Festival is from 14th March and the closing gala film is about a lesbian. A Mexican one.

  1. I’ve DONE everything a mother can do: I’ve locked her in her room, I’ve beat her with the car aerial. Nothing changes her. It’s HARD being a loving mother!
