Supported by a grant from Erie Arts & Culture, the exhibit featured 58 artworks by 28 LGBTQ artists from northwestern PA. There was a variety of styles, subjects, and media in the exhibit, including painting, sculpture, photography, fiber, pastels, drawing, and mixed media.

Three merit awards of $100 each were given to Shawn Washburn for his mixed media work "Current Urban Migration," to Forrest Hensley for his oil painting "Jenn," and to Jennifer Freno for her wood & mixed media sculptural series, "Dysphoria," which contained three thematically-related sculptures titled, "Abnegation," "Liberation," and "Sudden Impact."
