ooh ok.

I thought it was odd because I heard this abbreviation somewhere completely unrelated to the article.

No, I think it's just a common joke that god-knows-how many people have thought of independantly. I mean, LGBTQ is ripe for mockery, 'specially since they don't even agree what it means... Personally, I've always thought LGBT was mockable enough already.

When you're dealing with the gay community and politics in San Francisco you have to be very careful to include each group in that abbreviation, and in order.
