Read the First Chapter of the Epistle to the Romans. It is FAR more hard core than anything you will find in the Old Testament- ffs it advocates the death penalty for anyone even saying there should be tolerance for homosexuality. In terms of his humanity the Messiah Jesus was a Second Temple Jew- Second Temple Jews used to boast that homosexual activity did not exist among them and if it did crop up they would kill those involved. Where does Jesus complain about such attitudes in the Gospel?As for the New Testament, the passage that might be interpreted to be discussing homosexuality are far too vague and encompass a lot of prohibitions more explicitly than homosexuality is addressed.
