I think it's important to point out

the big shift in opinion towards LBGT-rights during the Obama administration. It was really during his presidency that advocating for pro-equality laws/policies went from being a third rail issue to a given. Look at North Carolina - I can't imagine that the bathroom bill would have sunk McRory a decade ago.
You could potentially give Obama some credit for slowly opening this door - certainly his rhetoric was a clear departure from Bush and Clinton. But I wouldn't give him too much credit.
