Celebrate Pride Month digitally with LEGO virtual backgrounds

Celebrate Pride Month online with free virtual background, courtesy of the LEGO Group.

As part of the Pride activities this year, the LEGO Group set their graphic designers to work creating rainbow-themed virtual backgrounds. Some are based on 40516 Everyone Is Awesome, while others are brick variations of the classic queer rainbow.

The designs can be adapted to suit any device. You could set as your desktop screen, phone or tablet home screen, or use it as your Zoom background on video calls. That way, no matter where you go, you’re celebrating Pride in a brick-like way.

This is just one of many ways that the LEGO Group have been celebrating queer culture this year. 40516 Everyone Is Awesome is the first LGBTQIA+ LEGO set, breaking new ground for the company.

The official design also prompted fans to create their own designs, including some diverse creative builds and a Marvel twist on the original set. Outside of LEGO products, the LEGO Group have also officially partnered with three LGBTQIA+ NGOs to encourage workplace inclusion for queer professionals.

You can download the virtual backgrounds for yourself from the LEGO Group’s website here.
