All I have to say is, it’s about time something like this was released!!
The other day, LEGO made the announcement via Twitter that they were releasing their first LGBTQ-Themed Legos just in time for Pride Month (June).
The set is appropriately named “Everyone Is Awesome” because everyone is awesome unless you are a jerk and hate on others.
LEGO said the buildable display model is inspired by the rainbow flag, which is used as a symbol of love and acceptance by the LGBTQIA+ community.
It features 11 monochrome mini figures each with its own individual hairstyle and rainbow color.
“I wanted to create a model that symbolises inclusivity and celebrates everyone, no matter how they identify or who they love,” said set designer Matthew Ashton, Vice President, Design. “Everyone is unique, and with a little more love, acceptance and understanding in the world, we can all feel more free to be our true AWESOME selves! This model shows that we care, and that we truly believe ‘Everyone is awesome’!”
The 346-piece model stands 10.24cm tall and has a depth of 12.80cm.
It goes on sale on June 1, to mark the start of Pride Month.
It will be available through LEGO.com and LEGO branded stores.
