This study investigates the literary discourse of AIDS optimism about men who have sex with men in Australia, The Netherlands and the United States. Six interviews consisting HIV-positive men who have sex with men, AIDS-activists and AIDS consultants were conducted. The study was analyzed through both the literary data and interviews. The analysis focused on AIDS optimism topics, such as HIV as a threat and viral load, and target groups. The result of this study is an AIDS optimism model that is sensitive to Dutch culture.
