WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 8, 2019 / LGBTQ Loyalty Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK:LFAP) ("LGBTQ Loyalty" or "the Company"), a financial methodology and media company that quantifies corporate equality alignment with the LGBTQ community, announced today signature participation at the upcoming Inside ETFs conference taking place in Hollywood, Florida this coming January 2020. LGBTQ Loyalty board members, Barney Frank, a former U.S. Congressman and Billy Bean, Vice President and Special Assistant to the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, are scheduled to speak at the conference -- recognized as the global preeminent event for the exchange-traded fund (ETF) industry. Panelists Barney Frank and Billy Bean plan to discuss the anticipated market launch of the Company's Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) LGBTQ100 Index in late October 2019.
"We are honored to have Barney and Billy, two of the most respected LGBTQ advocates for equality in our community and esteemed board members who are leaders in the financial sector and Corporate America, present on our ESG Index methodology at the most prominent conference in the ETF industry," said Bobby Blair, CEO of LGBTQ Loyalty.
Presenting in the keynote panel titled, The Power of Inclusion & Equality: A New Approach to ETFs, Barney Frank and Billy Bean will speak on the historical context for ETF's as created for inclusion and equality for investors -- and how an innovative Index methodology has been developed to pioneer a new kind of ETF to advance LGBTQ equality for human rights beyond the investment management marketplace. Longtime subject matter expert in ETF's and LGBTQ Loyalty board member, Robert Tull added, "This will be the first product that I'm aware of in the Index methodology world that has preference (to seek out) input from the target audience of the product, and the target audience that goes with it....the fact that the Index will have the first mover advantage is always a massive plus."

LGBTQ Loyalty, considered a new industry-leading resource offering LGBTQ community alignment programs for Corporate America equality and inclusion, is excited to support its board member and Major League Baseball's (MLB) first-ever Ambassador for Inclusion, Billy Bean as he speaks in this important panel discussion at Inside ETF. Mr. Bean's leadership perspective advising MLB's 30 teams on equality-driven practices for greater success merits similar comparisons to inclusive results for the LGBTQ community and supporters in the financial sector. Billy Bean commented, "For us to be able to bring this to our community is a wonderful sign that we are a force in the workplace. We have built a great team here (at LGBTQ Loyalty) that has tremendous experience...and we really look forward to working together to make the most meaningful impact on our community."
