Actor Tom Payne confirmed that Paul “Jesus” Monroe on The Walking Dead is, in fact, gay. Payne even said that his character may end up showing some of this sexuality on screen. “I think that would be amazing,” confirmed Payne.
The premier revealed a scene between two other homosexual characters as Aaron spoke with boyfriend Eric about the future of Alexandria. “It’s going to be more,” said Eric, about the violence that will come to the small town.
In addition to these announcements, there’s also a rumor about Daryl’s sexuality.

Daryl Dixon’s sexuality has been in question for years. He’s never really had a love interest despite some time with Beth and closeness with Carol. Back when Frank Darabont was in charge, he did suggest Daryl Dixon possibly being gay.
For Reedus, “Allowing himself to fall in love is something Daryl Dixon wouldn’t have done until after he’s lost everything and the world’s gone to shit. Part of that character’s appeal is that you’re watching this guy reinvent himself as someone who’s finding a sense of self-worth through other people in his life.”
Reedus confirmed, “He’s slowly becoming proud of who he is.”
