Harris Glenn Milstead liked musicals, was drawn to feminine pursuits, and was bullied. He played “dress-up games” as a child in his mother’s clothes. Once, he showed up at a party dressed as an astonishingly passable Elizabeth Taylor. After meeting a crowd of gay hipsters and freaks, Glenn started camping it up and smoking grass. In this group, Glenn met the man who was about to change his life - John Waters. Glenn and Waters bonded over their mutual love of cinema. With Waters’ encouragement, Glenn created a new acting persona, a new character.
