Honey Boo Boo's Uncle Poodle Reveals He Is HIV Positive

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayHealthLGBT


Love or hate Honey Boo Boo and her family's ways, we'd hope you'd have the utmost sympathy for them if anyone of them got life-threatening news.

For instance, her uncle (who she calls Uncle Poodle, real name Lee Thompson) has revealed that he's HIV positive, and we're floored by it. He's been a huge advocate to what he calls "queer rednecks," which has equality and love at heart.

He now wants to use this information to teach others to use protection, and to be tested often… because, here's the thing: he tested negative in March 2012, and then positive May 2012. It can happen that fast.

It was his boyfriend that infected him. Here's what he has to say about it:

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.

His ex is now serving five years for doing something so awful.

Still, he remains positive and wants to help the youth coming to terms with who they are in the LGBT community:

My advice is to seek out their parents or an adult they trust. I would not advise them to go public or share the information with their schools until they feel safe and comfortable. They will know when the time is right. I want to have my own television show and highlight what it is like being gay in the south. I think I have a good story to tell.

We think you do too — and if not a show, maybe a documentary!

Would U guys be interested in an Uncle Poodle doc? We would!

Hope everything is okay Lee!

    Any information about AIDS is useful. Considering this and other STD's can affect anyone from anywhere, it would be such a valuable source of information. God bless him. I hope he finds comfort in teaching his fellow man.

    an awful lot of this story sounds like bullshit. Incubation period for HIV is more than 60 days, on the LOW end 8 to 24 months, And arrest, trial , conviction and sentencing in 6 months or less!!?? no fucking way. IF he has hiv, he did not get it from this fuck buddy, and this fuck buddy IS NOT in jail for this act. PERV-ez I would think that YOU would not want to PUBLISH FALSE information and LIES about HIV/AIDS. you continue your DESPICABLE WAYS.

    I love Honey Boo Boo because she brings out the hate and intolerance of the far left

    It's just one of the hazards of being a fudgepacker.

    I don't watch reality TV, so my knowledge of Honey boo boo and her family is limited only to photo's and articles I happen across on the internet, most of which I simply ignore. However, this is sad news for any person to receive, so I wish him the best and I'm sorry that this happened to him.

    first off all!!!! if anyone has sex with anyone man or woman you are at risk of getting HIV and any other stds… HIV is not specific to men dumb ass below MR STRATT!!! second if you have unprotected sex with anyone at any time, you risk contracting HIV!!! the fact that this is in the news is fucking stupid!!! No you don't seek sympathy when you choose to have unprotected sex! Trusting the wrong people with your own health is always a mistake!!!! hell yeah its wrontg to have sex unprotected and not tell someone, but you cannot put your own health in someone elses hand! It is also this mans responsibility he his HIV postivie and needs to take responsibility for his own actions! This is probably bull shit but still it applies…

    i have great news for you sir, Jesus does not want you to die of AIDS. It will require a leap of faith for you. Call Matt McConn at his horse farm. They are waiting, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, a host of people who will listen to single dads, abused women, etc. Calls are screened and triaged. AMH

    In 1987 a professor drew a chalk board picture of the alleged virus. IT is the larval stage of the tricho. species WORM!! Found in poorly cooked pork and raw fish. Need more to believe on, find me an Asian with AIDS. Watch War of the Worlds for Morgan Freeman. The most toxic thing in Guelph right now is the WATER!!!

    And Jesus wants the world to know that condoms do not protect against STDS, if at all. Our entire skin is a porous organ people!!

    God bless, oh yes, avoid all additives, sweenteners, etc… Whole foods rule… AMH

    Re: raypearson – You know, not all case is as cut and dry as you make it sound. Everyone's body reacts differently to disease.

    Oh well that will help him get more dates. He seems to actually be the healthiest one in the fambly. The rest have coodies, lice, crabs, obesity & retardation so…

    A homo with AIDS, what a shock.

    It was not the right thing to do. Pursuing charges leaves one person a criminal and the other appearing as the helpless victim who forgot to take charge of their own sexual health. You cannot rely on others to protect you. Take responsibility for yourself, stop playing the victim and stop criminalizing HIV.
