The family from TLC's hit reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo competed against the Cake Boss cast on last Monday's Family Feud, hosted by Steve Harvey. While their team didn't win, they still pledge to give $10,000 to GLAAD. Check out two clips below.

Breakout TLC reality star Alana Thompson, better known as Honey Boo Boo, become a famous pint size ally when she said on her show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, “Ain’t nothing wrong with bein’ a little gay. Everybody’s a little gay.” Thompson’s out Uncle Lee Thompson (“Uncle Poodle”) and the rest of the family have participated in Spirit Day to take a stand against anti-LGBT bullying the last two years, including creating a video of Lee speaking about being bullied for growing up gay in the South (posted in 2012.) Lee earlier this year spoke out publicly about being HIV positive.

Thank you to the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family for speaking out as allies of the LGBT community and their support of GLAAD's work to ensure that the stories of LGBT people are heard through the media.
