Scott Pomfret '90 is the author of a new book, Since My Last Confession,
which has the subtitle "A Gay Catholic Memoir." Pomfret is a trial attorney
with the Securities and Exchange Commission in Boston, as well as an author.
Published in June 2008 by Arcade Publishing, the book is described as a
"lighthearted memoir of humor and faith" that "tells two intertwined stories:
how a gay Catholic federal prosecutor and erotica writer with an atheist
boyfriend reconciled faith, gay romance and a hostile Pope by stalking
Boston's Cardinal O'Malley much like Michael Moore stalked Roger Smith
in Roger & Me; and how advocates defeated an amendment banning
same-sex marriage in Massachusetts, the second-most Catholic state in
the country, in spite of fierce opposition from the bishops of the four
Catholic dioceses by enlisting a coalition of gay-friendly priests, a few
Jewish lesbians and an army of gay Catholic storytellers."
Pomfret, with his partner Scott Whittier, are also the sucessful authors
of a series of romance fiction books for gay men, called "Romentics."
At St. Lawrence, Pomfret majored in
psychology and English.
He was a member of the English honorary the
Irving Bacheller Society and was inducted into the national academic honor
society Phi Beta Kappa.
