To compete in Mr. Gay World

A former Red Deerian will be representing Canada at the Mr. Gay World competition in South Africa in April.

Josh Rimer, who grew up in Red Deer and moved to Vancouver 11 years ago, hosts and produces interstitial programming for OUTtv, Canada’s national LGBT TV station, where his content will now focus on his journey as Mr. Gay Canada.

“In 2018, I showcased more than 30 different gay-friendly destinations in my TV and online content, but in 2019, I want to put a spotlight on some of the amazing organizations and people in our LGBT community, in Vancouver and across the country,” Rimer said in a statement.

Rimer has volunteered with a number of charities, including the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation, A Loving Spoonful, AIDS Vancouver, the LOUD Foundation and Foundation of Hope.

Each year an inspiring, charismatic, articulate and confident candidate is chosen by the gay community to be Mr. Gay Canada to compete in Mr. Gay World.
