The first openly gay character I came across in SF was Brahma in Zelazny's Lord of Light, who is a lesbian (depicted, as was the wont at the time [the mid-1960s], as really wanting to be a man and achieving her/his goal). Not at all progressive in present-day terms, but pretty daring for those days.
(Oops, better make clear that I read it in the early 70s. I don't want to seem older than I am.)
