Ep.13 – Bruce B. Heller - GayFOLs

Greg sits down with Bruce B. Heller, a US AFOL who went from a successful career in animation to building LEGO commissions full-time. He is also the founder of GayFOLs- a global community providing a safe and inclusive space for LGBTQIA+ AFOLs. He discusses some of the discrimination faced by many in the community, and what GayFOLs means to its members. Bruce educates listeners (and Greg) on how they can be allies to the LGBTQIA+ community and shares his hopes for the future of GayFOLs. ***Episode Content Warning: Suicide Check out Bruce’s bespoke LEGO models through his Cornerstone Brick Designs business: To join the GayFOLs Facebook community: Follow GayFOLs on Instagram: For our Australian listeners: If you require mental health support, here are some helplines: Lifeline – call 131114 or visit Suicide Callback Service – call 1300 659 476 or visit For our younger listeners, visit Kids Helpline online at or call 1800 55 1800 For LGBTIQA+ support – call 1800 184 527 or visit For our International listeners, please speak with your doctor for local support services. -- Thanks for listening :) Don’t forget to subscribe to us, wherever you get your podcast fix.
