News The meeting with two trans women that might have helped convince the Arkansas governor to oppose the anti-trans bill

by Brandon Scott

The two discussed the bill and Hutchinson told her he would do what he could to stop it.

“He said, ‘I want you to know that I support you, I’m here for you and I want you to know that this is not how the community feels,’” she said. “He was very supportive of me.”

The bill’s sponsor, state Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, had not responded to requests for comment by press time. The bill’s co-sponsor in the House, state Rep. Tony Hilliard Jr., R-Lithonia, also had not responded to a request for comment as of press time.
