Glenn Belverio is an American writer and editor, known primarily for his film and video work in the 1990s. In 1993, Belverio collaborated with Camille Paglia on the short film Glennda and Camille Do Downtown, which screened at the Sundance Film Festival. In Glennda and Camille, as well as other video and performance projects, Belverio appeared in the drag persona Glennda Orgasm. Belverio’s Orgasm was a praxis of what Paglia termed “drag queen feminism.” In 1996, a retrospective of Belverio’s film and video work took placeat the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, marking the end of his filmmaking career. Belverio then went on to publish articles on the New York fashion scene. He is the author of Confessions from the Velvet Ropes: The Glamorous, Grueling Life of Thomas Onorato, New York’s Top Club Doorman (St. Martin’s Press 2006). In 1993, Belverio curated and presented a film, co-directed by Chris “Teen” Martin, at The Kitchen at part of SPEW/New York.
