Bit difficult perhaps since usually "blah=yes" means that blah is
available or blah is permitted, not that the place is mostly/exclusively
(e.g. smoking=yes, bus=yes, vegan=yes)
Conversely, in your definition an "lgbtq=no" would then mean that the
place is *not* specifically an lgbtq place; many users could, however,
misread lgbtq=no (which would be a valid tag for the majority of places
since they don't specifically cater to lgbtq people) as "this place does
not admit lgbtq people" (which is probably/hopefully true only for a
very small number of places).
Sadly I do not have a good suggestion. You don't want "lgbtq=only" since
usually an lgbtq bar *will* admit straight people (unless they're a hen
party maybe). You'd need something like "lgbtq=mainly" - which would
still not be exactly what you were looking for since it talks about who
goes there in practice, not whom the place tries to attract. Perhaps
"lgbtq=designated" combined with "straight=yes" ;)
