This chapter provides detailed information regarding the behavioural research program that was used to collect the data which informs the ideas explored in the book. The reader is introduced to the protocol and methodology that was undertaken to obtain these ethnographic, life history interviews. Also included is the sampling methodology and the interview guide. The qualitative methods of analysis, rooted in grounded theory and The Listening Guide, are explained next. Finally, the fifteen men interviewed for this project, all of whom are gay, long-term survivors of AIDS, are introduced and a brief overview of each of these men is provided, conveying information from their respective childhoods’ to the present. The life experiences of these men are suggested to be illustrative of the resilience of these men of the AIDS Generation.
