I’m a TV Producer/Host, a Content Creator/Influencer, a Travel Writer… and I was Mr. Gay Canada 2019!

Hi, I’m Josh Rimer and I’m primarily known for the travel videos that I produce and host for my YouTube channel and two TV stations: OUTtv (airing at random times daily) and HappiTV on Pluto TV Cabada (airing on Saturday mornings at 11:30am local time).  My YouTube channel has 40K subscribers, over 1.2 million Canadians have OUTtv on its own or in a package (through cable providers) and 10K people tune in to HappiTV on Pluto TV Canada each week.  I’ve done travel content from all over the world and I also share photos and reels from my trips on my social media accounts, like on Instagram where I have over 11K followers.

I’m quite active on my social media and have a pretty engaged following of people who’ve been watching and interacting with me online for years. Daily Hive, which is western Canada’s largest online-only publication, did an article about my journey (both in terms of my travels and in terms of being a YouTuber).

I also occasionally do travel writing and have written for IN Magazine (Canadian LGBTQ2+), Luxe Beat Magazine (Luxury lifestyle), and GayCalgary Magazine (Albertan LGBTQ+). Here is a travel article I wrote for IN Magazine (about Penticton, BC) and a cover story I wrote for GayCalgary Magazine (about Sannie aka Whigfield):

I’ve been hired to write/produce/host videos for other people as well (see Gayosphere screenshot below), I often do brand deals on my Instagram account to promote companies I like (see WRKOUT screenshot below), and I had nearly 160K followers on a video app called Rizzle until it shut down in early 2022 (see Rizzle screenshot below). I’m based in Vancouver, BC so when I’m not travelling that’s where you’ll find me and where my non-travel content is created!
