“Everyone is Awesome”: Lego Launch First-Ever LGBTQ-Themed Set
Ahead of Pride month, Lego has revealed its latest set in support of the LGBTQ community – named ‘Everyone is Awesome’.
The set’s designer, Matthew Ashton, said in a statement today; “I wanted to create a model that symbolizes inclusivity and celebrates everyone, no matter how they identify or who they love.
“I am fortunate to be a part of a proud, supportive and passionate community of colleagues and fans.
“We share love for creativity and self-expression through Lego bricks and this set is a way to show my gratitude for all the love and inspiration that is constantly shared.”
The new set will hit shelves in June, to mark pride month, as Lego become the latest well-known toy manufacturer to create lines that are more inclusive for both the children and adults that love their products.
“We’re super excited to reveal our new set – LEGO Everyone is Awesome! Because we celebrate every LEGO builder,” Lego posted on Twitter.
