Why would a Gender Support group Not Celebrate there 30th Aniversary ?

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

The ? management of Gender Mosaic Inc. has decided to defer the celebration of the 30th  Anniversary  3 months until September.

The reason is simple, money and greed.

The management has a Spring Fling Event that yields them an estimated $100,000.00 +  dollars and would have interfered with that event.

That’s nice bit of change for a non-profit group and the group it’s self does not get any of that money, save a Kick Back, it is not clear if the Kick Back goes to the group or just the Exectve.

Should you attend that event you will be lining there pockets as the ash trays are full now, and they need new cars.

The group has mutated since it start into this Corporation, here is No Support…….Just Money.

This is indeed a very Special Event, it’s So Sad they don’t see that.

To the rescue comes the 1st, 2nd,and Third Presidents, they have setup a Celebration on May 31h for the members of GM, for more information kindly contact genderfreedom@genderfreedom.ca

Dr. Barwin is retiring!

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

Dr. B. Norman Barwin, one of the Ottawa trans community’s most cherished medical resource people, is retiring officially this summer. His office will close forever at the end of the regular practice day on August 29, 2014.

Dr. Barwin has guided hundreds of Ottawa and area transsexuals through their biochemical transitions over the past several decades and has received the highest awards for service our community can bestow. He retires after 50 years of medical practice as a Gynecologist and Endocrinologist.

All of us at Gender Freedom wish Dr. Barwin all the best in a long, happy and active retirement. We look forward to seeing him on the bike paths and the cross country ski trails!
