Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of how best to move the field of health research among gay and bisexual men forward. It starts with a description of "generations" of research, i.e., research at the description, correlational, and intervention generations and makes the case that with few exceptions, research among gay men is still at the first generational level. The chapter provides a strategic framework to move research forward quickly through the generational developmental phases so that interventions of proven efficacy can be produced in a timely manner to raise health levels among gay and bisexual men.
