Glenn was born before civil rights, gay rights, or women's rights...God doesn't want people created out of a Xerox machine...The tragedy is that Glenn was cut off right at the point of becoming who he really was, and the world will never see how that flower could have unfolded

-Reverend Leland Higginbotham in his Eulogy at Divine's funeral; Baltimore, Maryland, March 1988
