As Pride Month comes to a close, we had the opportunity to speak with Teo Yu Sheng this week. You might know him as the brains behind the Singapore-based queer brand Heckin Unicorn, whose quirky enamel pins and socks may confuse straight people at first glance. We chat with him about being queer in Singapore, getting inspiration for his LGBTQ-themed merchandise, and his recent collaboration with MTV on their #LoveBeyondGenres campaign.
