While culinary societies may never laud Honey Boo Boo's family for their “sketti" recipe, the child known as Alana Thompson has become GLAAD's new gay rights champion.

GLAAD announced that Honey Boo Boo will be one of the supporters wearing purple on Spirit Day (which is today), to oppose bullying and show support for the LGBT community.

Honey Boo Boo has an openly gay uncle, and one of her quotes — “Ain’t nothing wrong with bein’ a little gay. Everybody’s a little gay” — is featured on a Spirit Day promotional poster. (Check it out here.)

Mama June told E! News, "We've always supported gay people, even long before the show started."

There's a huge list of celebrities showing their purple power for Spirit Day — including Dianna Agron, Kristin Cavallari, Ashley Benson, Craig Ferguson, Emilie de Ravin, Mario Lopez, Jimmy Kimmel, Reba McEntire, Joel McHale, and everyone else here.

Will you be going purple today?
