"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!
