Joey Batey has never confirmed that he is gay. It would be safe to assume the Jaskier actor is straight until and unless he provides any updates about his sexuality.
The Witcher, a Netflix original series, takes set on the Continent, where numerous kingdoms engage in a conflict that determines the fate of the world. The birth of Ciri of Cintra, whose incredible power makes her a prized asset for anybody seeking to dominate the Continent, sows the seeds of this battle. Her story crosses with Geralt of Rivia, the titular Witcher, Yennefer of Vengerberg, a strong sorcerer, and Jaskier, a bard.
In Season 3 of the show, Jaskier develops with another character named Radovid. Matter of fact, they even share a kiss later. This confirms that Jaskier is into men, or probably in both men and women.
On the other hand, viewers have been curious to know if the Jaskier actor, Joey Batey, is gay in real life. Well, here's everything you need to know about his sexuality.
Previously, we touched on Anya Chalotra's race.
No, Joey Batey Is Not Gay!
Before the release of Season 3, many viewers had speculated that Jaskier might be gay because of his affection toward Geralt. Season 3 of The Witcher confirms that Jaskier is gay as he falls for another male character, Radovoid, and eventually kisses him. Similarly, viewers wonder if the Jaskier actor, Joey Batey (@joeybateyofficial), is gay as well.

Joey currently does not appear to have have a girlfriend or a wife. He has recently not been spotted with anyone either. This might have further led viewers to question his sexuality.
However, Joey Batey has yet to given any statement regarding his sexuality. As a result, it would be safe to assume he is straight until he gives any updates. Just because he feels comfortable playing a gay role does not mean he is gay in real life as well. He is an actor after all.
It would be unwise to question Joey Batey's sexuality because of his character in the Netflix show. We would have to wait for further indication to discuss it in detail. And it would be totally okay if he comes out s gay someday, sooner or later.

And according to the show's official Twitter account, Part 2 of Season 3 will be released on July 27, 2023.There's about a month between the two releases, so there's plenty of time to process what happened at the Conclave and speculate on what the ramifications could be.

Season 3 Part 2 will have a lot to wrap up, starting with Vilgefortz, Dijkstra, and who knows how many more sorcerers organizing a revolution at what was meant to be the Continent's most routine conclave of magicians. We now know that it was the charming Vilgefortz, not Stregobor, who has been messing around with portals and mind-controlling half-elven girls, trying to convince them that they are the Princess Cirilla—a powerful magic user (with Elder blood!) whom Geralt and Yennefer have been attempting to teach to harness her abilities.
What were these "False Ciris" going to be used for? What will become of the one Geralt was able to save, whose original name was Teryn? In the novels, a "False Ciri" married the Emperor, therefore unifying the realms of Nilfgaard and Cintra, despite the Emperor's knowledge that she wasn't the actual Ciri all along. Is the show preparing a similar, but more indirect, twist? We shall find it all on June 29.
Season 3 of The Witcher is now streaming on Netflix.
