Tank-aret: Maybzgiving: A Queerucopia

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street, First Floor New York, NY 10018 United States (map)



From the brain that brought you Love Letters to Nobody and that Facebook status you liked last week.

Once every couple of years, Maybe Burke's birthday falls on Thanksgiving. This is one of those years. Join Maybe as they do basically whatever they want, because that's how birthdays work. From Accidental Trans Anthems to original parodies to some songs that they just always wanted to sing. Special Guests TBA because no one likes to party alone. (Like Maybe has for several birthdays.)

We all know that Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for what you have. (Also a time to ignore the fact that we stole this land from Indigenous folks.) Maybzgiving is our way of reminding you to be thankful that you have a Maybe in your life.

You're welcome.

Maybe Burke is a New York based theatre artist and trans advocate interested in telling the stories that haven't been told. They are excited by new material that can honestly and realistically portray marginalized groups of people. Their work has been seen at Joe's Pub, Cherry Lane Theatre, Ars Nova, HERE Arts Center, New Dramatists, The Flea, The Duplex, and more. Maybe is a co-curator of the Trans Theatre Festival at The Brick, and the founder of The Trans Literacy Project with Honest Accomplice Theatre. Maybe has spoken on many panels and facilitated several workshops around trans and queer identities. They have spoken for Buzzfeed, BroadwayCon, The LGBTQ Center, Nasty Women Unite Festival, The Tank, The Brick, Dixon Place, and several High Schools and Universities. They teach programs that are offered throughout the country with Sex Discussed Here! and The Transgender Training Institute. Maybe hosts a video series called The Maybe List, where they discuss topics that leave people unsure how to feel, and telling you where Maybe stands. They also have a weekly series called Dear Baby Maybe, where they write letters to their 12-year-old self. BA Directing, Pace University. @believeinmaybe
