BGQLT – The ‘Big Quilt’ Community

bgqlt

LGBTQ is a good example of how an acronym can suffer from ACDS (Acute Consonant Density Syndrome).  Fortunately for this particular acronym there is a remedy for the condition, at least in spoken language. The letters could be reshuffled to BGQLT, which could be spoken as Big Quilt. The Big Quilt Community: A patchwork of united yet distinct identities!

Wikipedia gives a nice explanation of the evolution and variant acronyms of the LGBTQ community.
