France came close in 1658 when Louis XIV almost died of typhus and his openly gay younger brother Philippe was on the verge of becoming the new French King due to him being Louis's heir apparent during this time.

Also, Pete Buttigieg 2020. It might happen.

Also, does Frederick the Great count for this? I mean, he ruled Prussia and he did once write after losing a battle that "Fortune has it in for [him]. You see, Fortune is a woman, and I am not that way inclined." If that's not openly gay, I don't know what is.

Leo Verandkar is the Prime Minister of Ireland. Is that a big enough country?
He's a Head of Government though. If we count them in Serbia we currently have Ana Brnabić.

I think Phillipe was bisexual, he had a wife and children.
