Breakout reality star Honey Boo Boo will be wearing her finest purple for #SpiritDay tomorrow, as first reported by Marc Malkin at E! News. And she'll be joined by Uncle Poodle!

You can join us for Spirit Day by RSVPing on Facebook to wear purple on October 19 and by going purple today on Facebook and Twitter.

"We've always supported gay people, even long before the show started," Mama June told E! Online. "We didn't just do it because we have the show. Some people are kind of scared—what you'd call homophobes—but everyone knew Sugar Bear had a gay brother. It's not a big deal."

Honey Boo Boo joins other Spirit Day participants including all professionals sports leagues such as the NBA and Major League Baseball, the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign and Vegas strip, MTV, and celebrities including Ricky Martin and Reba McEntire! Additional TLC stars, including Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis from DC Cupcakes, stars of The Little Couple Bill Klein and Jen Arnold, Theresa Caputo of The Long Island Medium, and Monte Durham and Lori Allen from Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta Check out all of our participants now!
