Rachel | 1529 comments A paperback short story anthology from the early 1990s aimed at YA/teenagers. Various different authors, mostly British. All of the stories had characters who were LGBTQ.

There was one story told in the second person from the POV of a teenage boy who reacted badly when his friend came out to him, and then felt guilty and wanted to apologise. It started with a line something like, "Sitting there under the tree, you can't believe what you've done". I thought this story might have been by Pete Johnson but it doesn't show up in any lists of his books. That's the only story I remember in any detail.

Any help appreciated. I've looked at a few GR lists of LGBT short stories but I don't think any of them have what I want so far.
