Divine!

In the Et Alors? series: The one thing the world will never have enough of is the outrageous: Divine.

Divine born Harris Glenn Milstead in 1945, was an American actor, singer and drag queen. Described by People magazine as the “Drag Queen of the Century”,Divine often performed female roles in both cinema and theater and also appeared in women’s clothing in musical performances. Even so, he considered himself to be a character actor and performed male roles in a number of his later films. He was often associated with independent filmmaker John Waters and starred in ten of Waters’s films, usually in a leading role. Concurrent with his acting career, he also had a successful career as a disco singer during the 1980s, at one point being described as “the most successful and in-demand disco performer in the world.” Divine died in 1988.
