Are angels male and female?

Answer:
The Bible does not appear to support the gender of angels being male or female. Whenever gender is specifically “assigned” to an angel in Scripture, it is male (Genesis 19:10-12; Revelation 7:2; 8:3; 10:7). However, this does not necessarily indicate that all all angels  are male. Matthew 22:30 seems to indicate that angels are “sexless,” without gender: “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.”  If angels do not marry, there is no need for gender, at least not in the sense of human gender distinctions.

In a similar manner, God always refers to Himself in masculine language, although God is neither male nor female
  He is GOD. He uses masculine language because it more adequately describes who He is and what He does,   This was especially important in the patriarchal cultures in which the Bible was written. If angels do have a gender, in some form, Scripture would indicate that they are predominately or universally male or female. It is more likely that angels are genderless, just as God is, and that masculine language is just used to describe them and their role in serving God
The only angels mentioned by name in the Bible are Michael and Gabriel and these names are definitely male.  The Catholic bible, which includes 14 other books, mentions Raphael in the book of Tobit

But I stay with Jewish/Protestant Bible.

The Bible does mention two other angels that are also male and Evil.  They are Apollyon and Satan

Some commentators believe that the sons of God mentioned in Gen. 6:1-4 were fallen angels and they were able to impregnate mortal women.  After much study of this I also lean in that directionZech. 5:9 seems to indicate there may be female Angels

This verse however does not refer to angels. It’s a vision of demonic powers resurrecting ancient Babylon. This female with wings of a stork can only represent a Jezebel spirit and a non religious spirit. The land of Shinar in the next verse is the land of Nimrod that later became Babylon the seat of wickedness.
