New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been called many things, but this is probably a first.

"He has become part of the group of people that I am part [of] -- the gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual community," said former city councilwoman Margarita Lopez during a neighborhood ceremony yesterday. "And I make him an honorary lesbian today," Lopez added.

No word yet on whether the mayor will now hang out and watch "The L Word" with City Council speaker Christine Quinn.
