RIP: Divine (Glenn Milstead) - Oct 19 1945/March 7, 1988

I loved his acting, and, from what I saw of him off-camera, he was a sweet guy. He knew how to be a star when that was appropriate and then be just a regular guy sitting across the room or across the table telling funny stories when that was appropriate.  In one interview he said "My favorite part of drag is getting out of it. Drag is my work clothes. I only put it on when someone pays me to."

Heart attack. Forty-two. Missed by many friends and and many fans.
