Summer holiday reading

Having Fun: a short story, I presume completely auto-biographical, about being gay and young in 1950s Britain. A hugely enjoyable read. It reminded me of my own younger days of fumbling with straight/confused guys in a vain attempt at sexual intimacy while exploring, discovering and dealing with my own bent-ness. But it all came out in the wash, eventually.
Never despair and never fear, it's what young queers should learn.

UPDATE: Michael Gouda, the author, sent me the link to his website with other gay short stories he has written.
