Gay Rites

If you were a gay Catholic, what would you do to foster understanding and benevolence between the church and your gay community? If you’re federal prosecutor and gay erotica writer Scott Pomfret, then you live in Boston, and you’re in a perfect position to stalk -- er, we mean, find -- the Archbishop of Boston and change his mind about Massachusetts civil marriage and foster homo-Catholic relations. And along the way, you’ve probably met some real characters, such as your hard-core atheist boyfriend, those darned motorcycle lesbians, a few gay priests, would-be Opus Dei homosexual monks…the list goes on.

Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? You’ll have to head to the Tattered Cover to find out what happened next, and if you go tonight at 7:30 p.m., you can hear Pomfret discuss and sign his book, Since My Last Confession: A Gay Catholic Memoir. The TC is at 2526 East Colfax Avenue; visit or call 303-322-7727 for details.
