I Am Divine


The film portion of SXSW in Austin is shaping up to be a pretty rainbow experience. First up is the documentary I Am Divine, a documentary on filmmaker John Waters' drag star by Jeffrey Schwartz, who also made last year's critical smash Vito, an HBO doc about gay activist Vito Russo.

The documentary "tells the story of how Harris Glenn Milstead of Baltimore became Waters’s muse and biggest star. Those featured in the film include Waters, Tab Hunter, Michael Musto, Mink Stole, Holly Woodlawn, Ricki Lake, and Bruce Vilanch."

Other gay-themed films set to be screened at SXSW include Before You Know It, which traces a year in the life of three gay seniors, and Mr. Angel, which chronicles the life of educator and trans male porn pioneer Buck Angel.

Watch the trailer for I Am Divine below.
