Leslie by whitehotphoenix Leslie by whitehotphoenix
Famous Austinite Leslie Cochran on 6th Street during the 2010 Republic of Texas Motorcycle Rally. June 11, 2010. He's Austin's resident homeless, cross-dressing mayoral candidate. He invited me to his birthday party while I was talking with him. Great fun

Leslie by =whitehotphoenix Great shot of the late and great "Leslie" of Austin, Texas, who reigned as the city's embodiment of the "Keep Austin Weird" slogan for two decades before passing away in March of 2012. ( Suggested by xthumbtakx and Featured by 1pen )

Leslie was frankly awesome. People can call him weird all they want to, but he was a sweetheart. Most of the proceeds that he gained from merchandise, pictures and tips were given to help others. I talked to him once and the man was smart as a whip and funny as well. He is still missed and we still celebrate Leslie Day on March 8th here.

I went to Austin for a convention this past January, and it really is an interesting city to say the least. x3 I wish I could've met this Leslie. He sounds like a fun guy to chat with.

I agree, this guy is weird, but that doesn't mean this is a bad photo. It's in the photojournalism category, it's supposed to be of attention-catching things. Never heard of this guy before, learned something new today!

Yeah, I glanced at the death part, and mistook the first number for his death date rather than hospitalisation.
