Lego is launching its first LGBT-themed set named “Everyone Is Awesome”, with one figure a “clear nod” to the “fabulous” drag community.The LGBT+ Lego set will feature 11 brand new figurines, all but one of which has no specific gender designation as to “express individuality while remaining ambiguous”.
Matthew Ashton, vice president of design at the Lego Group Said that he created the set for his desk at the Lego offices because he wanted something that “reflected me and the LGBTQIA+ community I’m so proud to be a part of”.
He said he wished, as a kid, that he had seen an inclusive play set or statement from a toy company that said “everyone is awesome”. The LGBT+ Lego set also features a rainbow arch. Lego said the colours of the stripes were chosen to reflect the original Pride flag alongside light blue, white and pink stripes to represent the trans community. It also showcases black and brown stripes to honor the diversity of backgrounds within the LGBT+ community.
