ABSTRACT
This article reports results from a qualitative study that examined gay/bisexual men's experiences of living with HIV infection. Unstructured interviews from a diverse sample of 139 men were analyzed to examine how men coped with AIDS-related stigma. The qualitative study from which the data drawn was designed to examine gay men's experiences of living with HIV infection as a chronic illness. One-hundred and forty-four men were accrued. These men had been identified through self-referral in response to advertisements, flyers and community outreach efforts. Eligible were HIV-positive gay and bisexual men between the ages of 20-45 who lived in the greater New York metropolitan area and who had not injected drugs within the past two years. Cases were quota sampled to provide approximately equal numbers of African Americans, Puerto Ricans, and non-Hispanic whites. These three ethnic groups were chosen because available epidemiologic data indicated that they accounted for the large majority of AIDS cases in New York City.
