Text:Out Takes is holding a screening of I Am Divine in Christchurch on 4 May to raise money for the southern leg of the event in June. Watch the trailer and find out how to get tickets here. I Am Divine is the story of Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, from his humble beginnings as an overweight, teased Baltimore youth to internationally recognized drag superstar through his collaboration with filmmaker John Waters. Spitting in the face of the status quos of body image, gender identity, sexuality, and preconceived notions of beauty, Divine was the ultimate outsider turned underground royalty. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality, and revolutionized pop culture. I Am Divine is a definitive biographical portrait that charts the legendary icon's rise to infamy and his emotional complexities. This screening is a fundraiser for Out Takes 2014: A Reel Queer Film Festival which is returning to Christchurch from Thursday 11 June to Sunday 14 June (Hollywood Cinema). When: Sun 4 May 2014, 7:30pm–9:00pm Where: Hollywood 3 Cinema, 28 Marriner Street, Sumner, Christchurch City Restrictions: R13 Buy tickets here or by calling 0800 BUY TIX (289 849) GayNZ.com staff - 14th April 2014
