This community report presents the findings and analysis of a survey that was part of the quantitative stage of a mixed-method Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) project dedicated to examine the perspectives and lived experiences of racially and ethnically diverse, middle-aged and older men who have sex with men in Southern Nevada on factors that build and promote their resilience to HIV/AIDS. The CBPR project was conducted in collaboration with community partners such as the LGBTQIA+ Community Center of Southern Nevada, Southern Nevada Health District’s Ryan White Program, Community Counseling Center of Southern Nevada, and numerous other agencies from Clark County and surrounding areas. The findings and analysis of the survey were meant not only to inform and influence the subsequent qualitative stage of the CBPR project, but also services and programs in Southern Nevada that have a focus on promoting the resilience of men who have sex with men to HIV/AIDS.
