Skye spoke at a state Senate hearing meeting about the proposed law last month and talked about how he felt bullied bullied by his state legislators.

Skye Thomson closes his letter asking for a face-to-face meeting with governor – something that was considered and then pulled an hour before the governor signed the bill into law – because Skye believes the governor would that see he’s just another boy who’s worth protecting like anyone else.
