Created to advertise the release of John Waters’ cult-classic exercise in poor taste, Pink Flamingos, this parody tabloid newspaper features Divine on the cover, asking the question on everyone’s lips: “Is this ‘woman’ the filthiest person alive?”
These papers, a clever transposition of an item and plot point from John Water’s cinematic universe onto this so-called reality, were originally distributed to lucky cinema goers at early screenings of Pink Flamingos.
Printed inside are press clippings advertising the film, an interview with John Waters, stills from the film, and more.
A disgusting document of queer cinema.
