Austin Cross-dressing Legend Leslie Cochran Dies

Legendary Austinite, Leslie Cochran, is the only transvestite homeless person to ever become a living, breathing landmark. That is until recently.

Weekend Getaway: Austin, TX

Austin is somewhere I'm glad to call my home. It's a city that's big enough to be exciting, but at the same time small enough to be super friendly.

Coupled. Where Do We Go From Here?

I came into college with a well thought-out plan of what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to go to film school, live in Los Angeles, be a writer for television and maybe one day direct movies. I never figured a boyfriend into my whole equation.
