Following the 2017 publication of Dr Robinson’s Gay Men’s Working Lives Retirement and Old Age (Palgrave Macmillan) Mr Kirby suggested coming to Swinburne to discuss his own experience of work, retirement and old age. 

As part of his visit to Swinburne, he will take part in a public interview with Dr Robinson. After the lecture audience members are invited to join us for tea and coffee.
