Austin just got a lot less weird. RIP Leslie Cochran

If you’re going to have some brews down on 6th Street for SXSW, drink a toast to Leslie. S/he died at 1 a.m. in hospice care at age 60. Austin’s famous homeless cross-dressing sometime mayoral candidate has left us. Hopefully he’s in a better place – better than Colorado even. Let’s honor his memory by keeping Austin as weird as we can.

Here’s the story in the Statesman: Austin icon Leslie Cochran dies at age 60

  1. God bless the her/him. Do you really need to go to heaven if you live in Austin? Aren’t you already there?

  2. Well, hopefully there’s a bigger better Austin up there in the Sky for Leslie.
