Baltimore mayor endorses Divine monument — complete with ‘dog poop’

The proposed "Divine shrine" would be roughly 8' and 3' wide.

Baltimore is one Kickstarter campaign away from having an 8′ monument of drag legendary Divine forever gracing the corner of Read and Tyson streets.

And, according to the Baltimore Sun, the city’s mayor is all for it:

“The mayor thinks that the idea sounds divine,” said Howard Libit, a spokesman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, “and looks forward to seeing more details on the proposal.”

The marble and concrete monument would consist of an arch mounted atop two classically Baltimore marble steps, according to The Sun.

The “Divine shrine” would cost between $50,000 and $100,000, and some of that money would go towards a small bronze representation of the dog feces that he notoriously ate at the end of John Waters’ 1972 classic Pink Flamingos.

“It was a magic day in our happy young lives,” Waters once said about shooting the near-mythical scene.
