    that that NY clerk is hiding behind in order to avoid signing same-sex marriage certificates: she doesn't know any gays because there aren't any in her town (she says).   That's why, even though there's been some evidence that it doesn't make as big an impact as we think, I still swear by coming out as the most important political act we can make.  I know it's had an impact on the community where I grew up (in fact in a few weeks I'll be taking my husband to a cousin's wedding the same small-town Catholic parish I was baptized in - and they're all looking forward to seeing him.)   Living unapologetically out has made all the difference.
