D. (1998). The name ‘‘mincing queens’ vs. ordinary guys who just happen to be gay’, (see Box 2) is memorable, and signals both the focus of the theme – different ways of being gay, – and something about the content of the analysis – that participants’ navigate between two. An inductive approach to data coding and analysis is a ‘bottom up’ approach, and is driven, the data themselves – so that what is ‘mapped’ by the researcher during analysis closely, matches the content of the data. Depending on your topic, dataset and, precision in coding, you will have generated any number of codes – there is no maximum. They had a strong sense that behaving or speaking in certain ways (being a ‘bad gay’, Taulke-Johnson, 2008) invited ‘trouble,’ and placed the onus on themselves to avoid it and, protect themselves: ‘you have to sort of be very careful how you sort of came across to, people’ (David).

Thematic analysis is a flexible method that allows the researcher to focus on the data in, numerous different ways. Early adolescence (ages 10 - 14) is a crucial stage of development. This ‘minimising the, negative’ approach was common: the participants consistently framed phenomena that could, be read as evidence of heteronormativity and instances of prejudice (Taulke-Johnson, 2009), Asha earlier vividly described this process in a way which suggested it. Hypothetically Speaking: Using Vignettes as a Stand-Alone Qualitative Method With TA you can legitimately focus on analysing meaning across the, entire dataset, or you can examine one particular aspect of a phenomenon in depth.

Make notes on the entire dataset as well as on individual transcripts. There are many different, styles of transcription (e.g., Edwards & Lampert, 1993) but if transcribing audio data for, thematic analysis, this level of detail is more than sufficient.
