Best Austin Icon

Leslie Cochran

You know you're an icon when people visiting from out of state (or even out of the country) happily tell their townie friends "I saw Leslie!" as if it's a badge of having nailed the Austin experience. Such is the prominence achieved by River City's favorite cross-dressing, neighborhood-rambling magnet-doll magnate, former mayoral candidate, and T.C. Boyle lookalike Leslie Cochran.
