Summary The detailed interview is a classic method of qualitative data collection. To be conducted effectively, interviews demand considerable skill and judgment. Nowhere is this more critical than when working with participants from disadvantaged and marginalised populations and when the research examines stigmatised conditions and taboo issues. To explore the techniques involved in researching these issues, this case study unpacks the approach taken for the Caribbean Masculinities Project, which used in-depth interviewing to explore 'coming of age' and 'becoming a man' among 138 diverse young Caribbean men from eight countries. The practical experiences and the lessons learned are outlined.
