I have written here before about how brave I think Lee Thompson is to live openly as a gay person in the south and the beatings he has to endure because he is gay. Well, the uncle of Honey Boo Boo who she refers to as Uncle Poodle total “Fenuxe” magazine in Atlanta that he is HIV+. He was diagnosed last year and says that he always had been religious about checking his status and that On March 16 last year he tested negative and then in May 2012 tested positive. His boyfriend at the time infected Lee and had not bothered to tell him that he was HIV+ and was not taking medication to control his infection. Lee pressed charges against his ex who is now serving five years in jail because of his failure to inform Lee about being a carrier.
