“I have really enjoyed working on this model, as I think it brings to life exactly what Pride is about – people from across the world coming together to celebrate love, friendship and happiness,” explains Michelle.

“Just like the real parade, we wanted to share the enthusiastic spirit of togetherness in the display.

"Each Lego piece in the model is unique, important and serves a purpose to create the full effect, capturing the essence of Pride and bringing to life the unique characters and amazing people you meet at the celebrations.”
