The acceleration of the LGBT sports movement mirrors the Obama presidency. In the last eight years, more athletes, coaches, administrators, executives and media members have come out than the rest of history combined.

Having an LGBT-friendly administration with a president who publicly acknowledged openly gay athletes – and ultimately championed same-sex marriage rights and other key LGBT issues – was a sign of this societal acceptance.
