To complicate matters, eunuchs were considered either female or a "third gender," meaning a heterosexual man could have sex with them without being considered gay

Alexander was bisexual. A common theme of the time. His lover Hephestaion was a chilliarch (equivalent to vizier or second in command) who was Alexander's partner. He would've taken over if he hadn't died before Alexander.
