A Handy Guide to Overwatch's Queer Characters

It's all of them. Every last one.

Our dedicated scientists at Rainbo have cracked the code! we've crunched the numbers, and discovered that every single Overwatch hero is queer. We've categorised them into their queer tribes for your delight.

For starters, here are some of Overwatch's hottest characters:

As you can see, we have carefully picked which heroes represent what sort of gay they are. Winston might be a gorilla (alright, a scientist), but he's my big bear any day of the week. And we can all see Zenyatta giving us solumn advice at 3am as we cry into our Long Island iced teas over the fact that the cute guy from Marrakech didn't want to bang.

Now let's take a look at some of the less conventional gay tribes.

We weren't sure whether to class Reaper as the "Edgy Gay" or the "Goth Gay". He's a bit of both, honestly. And McCree might be the Baywatch boy of our dreams but everyone knows he's a power bottom at heart.

If you disagree with any of these then don't @ me on twitter; I am a trained Gay Whisperer with decades in the field.

But we haven't covered all of the characters here - Which gay tribes did we miss out?
