Lego has announced a new product that will celebrate their LGBTQIA+ fans.
While Lego has done everything from Seinfeld to Harry Potter, this is the first time in the company's 72-year history that it will release a rainbow set, called 'Everyone is Awesome,' in honor of Pride month. The official press release read, “The buildable display model is inspired by the iconic rainbow flag which is used as a symbol of love and acceptance by the LGBTQIA+ community, and features 11 monochrome minifigures each with its own individual hairstyle and rainbow color.”
The 346-piece set will include colors from the original pride flag designed by Gilbert Baker (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet), as well as the black and brown stripes that were added by the city of Philadelphia in 2017 to honor people of color within the LGBTQ+ community. The set also features the hues of the trans pride flag (light blue, pink and white).
