Actually I'm from south of the Mason-Dixon line: Hickory, NC or thereabouts. I live in Phoenix now but Seattle before that after fleeing NC at the tender age of 19.
The early John Waters' movies: Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, and Desperate Living (the trilogy of trash), are some of my favorite movies ever. Throw in Multiple Maniacs, Polyester, and Serial Mom for good measure.
I'm also actually a man (a gay one). 😁 I love that picture of Divine.
