This poem is a result of my paths through performance autoethnography. From cries and pains of my (oppressed/oppressor) carved body as a middle-class White gay man, physician and professor in the medical setting, I seek paths of potential contribution to change, reconciliation, healing, inclusion, and love. Thus, I invite you to think about how certain bodies (maybe your body too) are meant to be excluded from medical environments with hidden prejudices. Hoping that we can seek transformations, walking together, holding hands with others who desire to work, think, live, and love freely!
