If you need me, call me. This is for all those who felt not enough or useless, that they cannot find their place. For those who are still looking for their security, themselves, for others that help you survive the emotions, that you might not understand yourself. On that you should depend and never worry. For you who might not be able to stand the look on your body that thinks will let everyone down. For those who are waiting for the right moment or period - and that's okay. For me, for you, for others we have in our lives.

In the performance, the author primarily deals with the topic of queer identity, growing up and memory. He harkens back to his childhood experiences in character of protective figure that we as queer children lack during growing up. The narrative is conceived from a personal point of view, but it focuses on the bigger picture, which everyone can relate to somehow.
