A new sculpture takes flight in New York City to celebrate the transgender community. The 10-foot tall sculpture is dedicated to the Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Community (GNC) and was unveiled in Tribeca Park in Manhattan. Internationally known visual artist Rubem Robierb is the creator of the sculpture “Dandara,” which is named after the 42-year-old transgender woman who was brutally attacked and murdered in Forteleza, Brazil, in 2017. “Nothing defines the powerful of reinventing yourself, the power to express your inner self, then a butterfly,” said Robierb. “You cannot tell a caterpiller she will not become a butterfly, because she knows she will.”
