The day is designed to take a stand against bullying gay people and other celebrities including Snooki and Ricky Martin will also taking part.
"We've always supported gay people, even long before the show started," said family matriarch Mama June. "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 (my husband) Sugar Bear had a gay brother. It's not a big deal."
