The Hon Micheal Kirby launches the first LGBTI Ageing Issue of the Australasian Journal of Ageing

5 November 2015

Yesterday the Hon Michael Kirby launched the first Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Ageing and Aged Care Special Issue of the Australasian Journal on Ageing  at the Australian Association of Gerontology conference in Alice Springs. As one of the Associate Editors of the Special Issue with my colleagues Dr Anthony Brown and Dr Catherine Barrett, it is a landmark event for promoting the visibility of older LGBTI people in research, policy and practice in Australia and New Zealand. The Special Issue includes the voices from older LGBTI people and their experiences of ageing and aged care as well as research and practice articles for people working in aged care in Australia and New Zealand.
