Sohail Justin Akhavein is a sexy and furry otter living in Minneapolis who loves to post daily doses of THOT thirst-trap pics to get our engines revved up. I mean—who’s parched?

But aside from his steamy grams, Sohail has been the subject of a recent online story that involved his mother and a unicorn.

Sohail’s mother came across a unicorn mirror at an estate sale and decided to pick the item up for her fabulous son. Why wouldn’t she? He looks like the perfect child!

But when his sister Sohaila found out that he got a mirror and she didn’t Sohail’s parents decided to commission a woodworker to replicate the decorative item. In order to do so, she reached out to her son asking him for pictures of the mirror—but of course he was too busy planning his next photo shoot. So when Sohail’s mother didn’t hear back from him quick enough, she resorted to finding any picture that was available of the mirror to send to the carpenter.

And well—this is what she found and sent:

But the best thing about this is how his mom dealt with this:



And it seems like both of Sohail’s parents have a great sense of humor. Just look at this message from his father:



Sohail shared with BuzzFeed News:

I’ve never taken their acceptance, warmth, love, and sass for granted, because I am well aware of many members of our greater queer community may struggle to navigate their personal expression of queerness on a platform their parents may have access to, let alone possibly not having direct access to those four things listed above.

Being a person of colour who was born into a set of ideologies that were in direct conflict with my personhood, it would be foolish to not allow my parents to ‘struggle’ with allowing their son to be who he is — because, they’re human, and allowing a human to process is part of the journey of meaning-making.

While it may have seemed counter at times, my parents have allowed me to process my queerness with me, and not at me. They’ve held my heart. They’ve made me contemplate representation.



This kid is HOT! He's lucky to have such supportive parents, some of us aren't so lucky. Love the pictures!
