"We have a vision of offering a road, a path, in which L/G/B/T talent can shine without the stigma or burden of pretense about their sexual orientation or gender identification." According to Gatson, "It is about offering quality entertainment from talented comics, singers, dancers and musicians that are a part of our community at the level of any of the great entertainers of our times."
