If you don't watch Honey Boo Boo... Uncle Poodle is the best

Lee Thompson aka Uncle Poodle the gay brother of Sugar Bear did an interview in Atlanta's gay magazine Fenuxe where he revealed he is HIV positive.

Poodle said - "On March 16, 2012, I tested negative, Then, in May of 2012 my test results came back positive. I knew it had been my boyfriend who infected me. 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."

"I would have been cool with his HIV status if he had been honest, I don't have an issue with the disease. I would have known how to protect myself."

As for Thompson's advice for people not practicing safe sex - "They are damn fools! They are playing Russian roulette; they are playing with their lives and that of their sexual partners."

Poodle's ex-boyfriend is currently serving a five year jail sentence after infecting him.
