No Jesus didnt address homosexuality, He addresses sin.
Your context about Jesus teaching is wrong.
Jesus was teaching His message to the world, when in the world all the Old Testament laws apply.
Jesus brought about a new covenant for Christians, not those in the world.
The Old Testament laws stand, for those outside of Christ.
Those within Christ, if they are homosexual will turn away from sin. Just as those in Christ will stop using pornography, lying, stealing, even
judging others for their sin.
Sin does not work on a sliding scale, homosexuality is as evil as murder, as evil as lying, stealing, lusting after the opposite sex.
The simple fact is that homosexuality is against Gods law, the OT law is still in effect.
