Honey Boo Boo's Uncle Poodle Engaged to Boyfriend

Poodle

Lee Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo's Uncle Poodle) is engaged to his boyfriend Alan, he announced on Twitter and Facebook last week.

Tweeted Thompson along with the above pic:

"To answer questions about this pic YES! Alan and I fact Engaged! I proposed to him this past weekend and he said YES!"

Since becoming well-known on his precocious niece's reality show, Thompson has spoken out for gay rights and against bullying and also came out as HIV-positive.

Said Thompson, who has been married to a man at least once before, in 2012:

"I’m gay, but I’m as redneck as I can get. If you want people to accept you, you have to show you don’t have a problem with yourself and just be up front about who you are. If you do, you earn people’s respect. If everybody would just go on and do that, ignorant people couldn’t cause so many problems. I know this is how I was born and I don’t need to explain it to anybody. I live my life for who I am. That’s why ‘Born This Way’ is gonna be my next tattoo."

Thompson spread the news on the same day that Honey Boo Boo's Mama June and Sugar Bear announced their decision to split.


Honey Boo Boo's Uncle Poodle Says He is HIV-Positive, Pressed Charges Against Boyfriend

Lee Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo's Uncle Poodle), reveals he is HIV-positive in an interview with Atlanta's gay magazine Fenuxe:

UnclepoodleDino: Lee, when did you find out about your HIV status?

Lee: I was adamant about getting my HIV status checked on a regular basis. On March 16, 2012, I tested negative. Then, in May of 2012 my test results came back positive. I knew it had been my boyfriend who infected me. I later learned he had been HIV positive and was not taking medication and had not bothered to tell me about it. I was advised that I should press charges and, hesitantly, I did. It was the right thing to do.

Dino: What happened to your ex?

Lee: He is serving a 5-year sentence. I would have been cool with his HIV status if he had been honest. I don’t have an issue with the disease. I would have known how to protect myself.

Dino: What is your message to folks having unsafe sex?

Lee: They are damn fools! They are playing Russian roulette; they are playing with their lives and that of their sexual partners.
