Abstract

This study presents an interpretative phenomenological analysis of the experiential accounts of HIV-positive gay men living in Scotland. 16 HIV-positive gay men took part in open-ended interviews. Three super-ordinate themes are presented; ‘Disclosure, deliberation and the abject other’; ‘Disclosure, care and the valued other’; ‘Disclosure and intimate citizenship’. These highlight the complex, situated and mindful ways in which disclosure occurs.
