Nerdus pennatus noctua Rarely seen in public much less the “scene,” Owls are the elusive, introverted, and often exclusively nocturnal sub-species of gay man, deriving most of their Vitamin D from radiation emanating out their computer monitors. While some Owls spend their evenings hooking up on Grindr, many others are busy coding an entirely new and superior hook-up app that will soon be available across all mobile OS platforms. To win an Owl’s heart, know all your X-Men gay storylines (explicit, implied, and meta-), comment on their gay Harry Potter slash-fiction, or order a print of their explicit, computer-generated artwork in which iconic male comic book characters are depicted having anal sex.
