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 nearly 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 from my trips on my social media, like on Instagram where I have 10.2K 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 both IN Magazine (Canada’s only national LGBTQ2+ lifestyle magazine) and GayCalgary Magazine (Alberta’s own LGBTQ+ magazine). 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 have my biggest social media following (157K followers) on a video app called Rizzle where I share 30 second recaps of my trips (see Rizzle screenshot below).
