ALL Signs Point to MAYBE / Maybe Burke

View flier

How do you know you’re transgender? With all the different words people can use for their gender, how do you find the one that works for you? What happens after you come out? Join Maybe Burke as they tell the story of growing to reject binary gender roles, choose their own name, and stay true to themself. Through personal anecdotes and Q & A, Maybe works to break down their personal journey of coming into nonbinary trans identity as a way to foster an understanding of transgender people and inspire listeners to be true to themselves.

All Signs Point to Maybe is a lecture and they also offer a Trans 101 webinar.


As trans people are gaining more recognition in the mainstream, a lot of terminology is being newly introduced into people’s lives. It can be hard to find a reliable resource to find the difference between “non-binary” and “gender non-conforming,” or to learn what “cisgender” actually means. This interactive training will cover the basics, clear up misconceptions, and help participants feel up-to-date on trans experiences.

They also offer programming around Sexual Assault Awareness:

Surviving The Report: Reli(e)ving the Trauma of Sexual Abuse

Since the height of the #metoo movement, conversations around sexual assault prevention and survival have skyrocketed. However, many people are still unaware of what it takes to report an abuser. This program will take you through one survivor’s story of survival from an early teenage abuser, to being able to name the abuse, to coming forward and reporting. Join Maybe Burke for a conversation about how they told family members, partners, friends, and eventually detectives; and how that process helped them to heal and grow from their experiences.
