6th Street Being Renamed After Leslie?!

There's a petition going around in honor of the late Austin icon, Leslie Cochran, to have one of the blocks of 6th Street renamed after him.

If you don't know Leslie, he was a notable man often seen around downtown in women's clothing who became the face of the "Keep Austin Weird" mentality. He passed away two years ago, although his spirit is still hanging around, with the help of people like Tracey Frazier, co-producer of the Leslie documentary and mastermind behind the petition.

For more info, watch the video from KXAN below and find out how you can help contribute to the Leslie Cochran documentary here to help keep the memory of an Austin keepsake alive.
