Going back to where I came out: Calgary, Alberta!

When I first came out as a gay man I was living in Calgary, Alberta – so it brought back a lot of memories to go visit that city again with my boyfriend! Check out what we did on our day there and follow me on Instagram at or get handwritten postcards from me mailed to you by signing up at 📮

New to my channel? Hi, I’m Josh Rimer – a gay travel vlogger/YouTuber, and TV host/producer! I visit gay-friendly destinations with my boyfriend Heath and we bring you along with us on our trips to help you figure out where you might like to go too!

Every Tuesday I upload a #TravelTuesday video to show you what we experienced as a #GayCouple on our #GayVacation and you can see the previous ones at

Every Thursday I upload a Hotel Hangout video from our hotel room where I tell you a story, collaborate with an LGBTQ local, or play a game with my boyfriend and you can see those at

I also have a 3 minute video called The Travel Tidbit which airs every day on OUTtv during (or in between) their regular programming. That TV channel reaches 1.2 million Canadians so if you live in Canada too you might have seen one of our #GayTravel videos take over an entire commercial break! They also upload those on their YouTube channel at

Everything in this video was shot on my iPhone X! I’m a Team TELUS Advocate so they’ve got me covered with great gear and plans to document my travels and stay connected when I’m on the go.

  1. I have relatives on my Dad’s side living in Pickering, Ontario, which I believe is near Toronto, but they have not been back to Ireland in years, although my late Grandmother did visit them – when I was on Facebook (which I have since deleted) I think that some of my cousins over there were freaked out that I was both gay and living in the UK and they hardly ever responded to my private messages or public posts, especially after my Mum’s death in 2009 and I believe that someone managed to get word to my Aunt and uncle over in Canada about my Dad’s death last summer in Ireland after I had come over to Ireland from the UK – that said, I do think that Canada is a wonderful country and we do have some Canadians visiting Manchester here in the UK

  2. Dylan says “dear guncle I love you so much, can you please send more videos for me when you go all over the world and don’t forget a snowglobe for me and I really liked your video” mom thinks it was so nice to see the town you’re from and it looks lovely there.

  3. The museum looks interesting, particularly the warriors exhibit. I want some of that gelato! My kids would love the train at Heritage Park! That tower is like the space needle in seattle! that korean burger looks yummy!

  4. Really nice to hear about your personal connection to the city, alongside the things to do. The Korean food looks incredible! Heritage Park looks awesome too. Thanks for showing us around!

  5. That's funny I don't see Heath as the club type but cool you both have history in the same place. Thank you for sharing your adventures I always feel almost there.

  6. What a beautiful place ….Once more you just go to amazing places … Your channel is just so cool ….keep up the great work …so happy I subscribe
