Jedan od najpoznatijih brendova igračaka – Lego – lansirao je nove figurice u duginim bojama. Pod sloganom “Svi su super”, kompanija je najavila novu seriju od 11 jednobojnih figurica. Set je izašao u prodaju 1. lipnja (2021. godine), simbolično početkom obilježavanja tzv. Mjeseca ponosa.

Boje su odabrane na način da simboliziraju originalnu duginu zastavu LGBT-a, uz svetloplavu, bijelu i ružičastu koje su obilježje trans zajednice te crne i smeđe koje obilježavaju različitost i toleranstnost boje kože. Štoviše, figurice nemaju rodnu pripadnost.

Po mom mišljenju, ovo je divan primjer inkluzivnosti koji slavi sav ljudski rod, bez obzira na spol, rod, boju kože ili seksualnu opredjeljenost. Također, na ovaj će se način djeca moći osloboditi i prihvatiti sebe onakvima kakvi jesu.

Lego unveils new figures in LGBT colors. By an operation called “Everyone is awesome”, the toy company announces the arrival of a new set of eleven monochrome figurines. The set goes on sale on 1st June, the start of Pride month.

The colors of the stripes were chosen to reflect the original LGBT rainbow flag, along with pale blue, white, and pink representing the trans community, and black and brown to acknowledge the diversity of skin tones and backgrounds within the LGBTQIA+ community. Moreover, no specific gender has been assigned to the figures.

In my opinion, it is a great symbol of inclusiveness that celebrates everyone no matter who they are or who they love. It can also help children to grow up and to identify themselves without any pressure.
