Sexuality

Klaus first mentioned to Five about his longest relationship, and that the person was a man. When he told Diego about the person he loved, Diego assumes they're a woman, but Klaus corrects him. This indicates that he wasn't close with his sibling or at least never told them about his sexuality.

During his time in the 60s, he finds a younger version of his boyfriend Dave before they met. Dave's uncle calls him a "queer" and makes Dave punch him for it.

Robert Sheehan stated in an interview that he considered Klaus Pansexual[1].

Reaction

Anon: When I found out Klaus was not straight (according to Robert Sheehan), a pansexual. I was through the roof! I loved Klaus, and he was my favourite from the start, and when we find out that his true love is a male, it made me unbelievably happy.

Gender

In an interview Robert Sheehan said “[Klaus is] Not necessarily a man, he's kind of just this creature that's not bound by traditional societal norms like 'man', 'woman', 'masculinity', 'femininity'. He just sort of… is.” [2] Sheehan also refers to his character by both he/him and they/them pronouns despite the characters in the show only referring to them by he/him pronouns[3].

Reaction

Relationships

Unnamed Boyfriend

Klaus mentions to Five that his longest relationship lasted three weeks, and that was because he needed a place to sleep. But he did make great osso buco.

Dave Katz

Klaus accidentally ends up traveling back in time and gets stuck in the Vietnam war, where he meets Dave. They fall in love but, unfortunately, Dave dies on the front lines while Klaus is desperately trying to call for a medic; it's unsuccessful and Dave takes his last breath in Klaus' arms. Klaus then returns to his proper timeline after spending 10 months with Dave. Because of his strong desire to see Dave again, Klaus tries to get sober so he can conjure him. It is shown multiple times that Klaus cares deeply for this man. For example, he goes as far as attempting sobriety and asks Diego to tie him up to a chair and announcing that Dave was "the only person I've ever truly loved more than myself."
