I’m a TV Producer/Host, a YouTuber/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 OUTtv, the national LGBTQ TV station in Canada.  My YouTube channel has 40K subscribers, and over 1.2 million Canadians have OUTtv on its own or in a package, through their cable providers.  I’ve done travel content from all over the world and I also share photos and reels from my trips on my social media, like on Instagram where I have 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!
