ERNEST CLAY has been Louie Crew's partner and husband since 1974. A gay African-American man born in rural Alabama, Mr. Clay was part of an interracial gay couple in a time and place where desegregation had only just begun, and miscegenation had long been a punishable crime. After Ernest and Louie married in a private ceremony thirty-two years ago, the local townspeople literally spat on them daily, and on its front page the county newspaper blamed their homosexual "sin" for causing the tornado that had devastated their town in 1975.
