For most of us, drag pioneer Divine probably conjures images of big hair, big boobs, and John Waters. But the guys behind Everything Divine Inc. want to ensure we know there's more to Divine, born Harris Glenn Milstead.
In Postcards From Divine, compiled by enthusiasts Noah Brodie, Dan Marshall, Michael O'Quinn, and Divine's mother, Frances Milstead, Divine's journey is shown as she traveled the globe from 1977 and 1987. Divine died on March 7, 1988.
The book also includes rare photos, quotes, and stories from friends and colleagues, including Waters, Mink Stole, Mary Vivian Pearce, Tab Hunter, Deborah Harry, Jerry Stiller, Ricki Lake, and others.
