In case you had any doubts, Lee Thompson, the 29-year-old uncle to Alana Thompson of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, has officially confirmed he’s homosexual.
“My husband an I live in Milledgeville because we want to be out in the country,” Thompson said of his spouse Josh. The couple wed in August. “I’m gay, but I’m as redneck as I can get, and we want to be somewhere we can fish and jump on a four-wheeler, go hog wallowing.”
Thompson gained popularity on the hit reality show as “Uncle Poodle,” a nickname the Honey Boo Boo clan gave him. Alana, 7, is famous for saying, “Ain’t nothing wrong with being a little gay. Everybody’s a little gay.” And Uncle Poodle confirmed that there are several other LGBT folks in the area he lives.
“There’s probably 4 or 50 of us – gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered people – around here, they’re all open about it, everybody knows it…It’s not like there’s a gay bar here. We go to the same bars as everbody else, we’re all part of the same community…If there’s people who have a problem with it, they keep it to themselves, just like if we have a problem with them, I keep it to myself.”
