LGBTQ Loyalty Holdings announces launch of the LGBTQ100 ESG Index

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA (October 30, 2019) - LGBTQ Loyalty Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: LFAP) (LGBTQ Loyalty), a financial methodology and media company that quantifies corporate equality alignment with the LGBTQ community, announced today through its wholly owned subsidiary, Loyalty Preference Index, Inc., the official launch of its anticipated LGBTQ100 ESG Index (Index Ticker: LGBTQ100). The environmental, social, and governance (ESG) Index is the first-ever index that references LGBTQ community survey data in the methodology for a benchmark listing of the nation's highest financially performing companies that our respondents believe are most committed to advancing equality. We believe that the news marks a significant moment in time for diversity and inclusion initiatives in financial markets and corporate America, as the index is available on the NYSE, Bloomberg, and Thomson Reuters.

'While we have made great gains in combating prejudice based on gender identity or sexual orientation, the fight is not over. The establishment of the LGBTQ100 Index is a logical next step in this effort,' said Barney Frank, former US congressman and member of the LGBTQ Loyalty board of directors.

The index, which will be reconstituted annually, [comprises] 100 LGBTQ equality-driven companies from the nation's top 500 publicly traded companies, based on our surveys. The LGBTQ100 ESG Index will maintain industry sector grouping whereby each sector can represent up to 25% in the weighting calculation. Details on the index composition criteria include company securities that:

(a) nurture and promote equality in the workplace for employees across genders and sexual orientations;

(b) maintain a strong track record of loyalty and brand awareness among millions of LGBTQ community members in the United States; and

(c) possess a record of consistently strong financial performance.

'We feel honored to be working alongside industry icons in this fight for equality. It was refreshing to discover what we believe is the correlation between equality and market outperformance, as shown by the LGBTQ100 ESG Index. We believe the outstanding results are sure to encourage socially responsible behavior among corporations worldwide,' said, Aashu Virmani, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Fuzzy Logix, the big-data analytics company managing the index methodology.

The survey, administered by the Harris Poll, provides the ESG Index with added significance for corporate and financial sectors by tapping a nationally representative respondent base of [self-identified LGBTQ] adults from across the United States. Adult respondents were asked about their attitudes and behaviors toward companies as well as alignment with their personal values and issues critical to the LGBTQ community.

Featured companies in the top selection of inaugural LGBTQ100 ESG Index include: Cisco Systems, Inc.; Amazon.com, Inc.; Salesforce.com, Inc.; Boston Scientific Corporation; Microsoft Corporation; Apple, Inc.; Becton, Dickinson and Company; Coca-Cola Company; JP Morgan Chase & Co.; and Alphabet Inc. Class C. [Go to https://lgbtq100.com/fact-sheet/] for the comprehensive Index factsheet.

'The launch of the Index indicates a significant milestone for our company, as it materializes our longstanding mission in partnership with the LGBTQ community to enhance industry standards for advancing equality in the marketplace,' said, Bobby Blair, CEO of LGBTQ Loyalty. 'The LGBTQ community and our allies finally have a benchmark of the top 100 companies that we believe best support equality along with our core values and principals. A benchmark of companies that we believe have earned our loyalty and dynamic spending power. I am incredibly proud to have contributed to this consequential day in LGBTQ history.'

Following the launch of the index, LGBTQ Loyalty is expected to announce and launch [its] new Corporate Loyalty Partnership programs.

Supporting LGBTQ Loyalty Board of Directors include [sic]: former US Rep. Barney Frank; Major League Baseball Vice President and Special Assistant to the Commissioner Billy Bean; International Tennis Hall of Famer Martina Navratilova; and ESPN, CNN, and Los Angeles Times media personality LZ Granderson.
