Follow along as The Gaycation Travel Show visits Vancouver, one of the most culturally diverse cities in British Columbia. It is also the third-largest of all Canadian metropolises. Being a seaport also makes it one of the most beautiful. There is a lot to unpack if you plan to visit given the city's density. Luckily our own Ravi Roth and travel YouTuber Josh Rimer aren't afraid to unbox all that gay Vancouver has to offer.
The Gaycation Travel Show Vancouver BC Episode
In this episode of the Gaycation Travel Show, we visit the Gay White North.
Rimer dispels a myth about Vancouver's climate during the cold months.
"Since it's in Canada I'm going to guess that some people think it snows a lot here in the winter, but we only typically get snow for less than a week in total each year. It's one of the warmest and greenest places to be in Canada during the winter if you don't mind a lot of rain!"
The Gaycation Travel Show Vancouver BC Transcript
Hey friends, my name is Ravi Roth and I'm your host of the Gayacation travel show. And today we're heading to the kindest country in the world, Canada, we're actually going to the southwest part of Canada, Vancouver to be exact, and we're linking up with Josh Rimer, former host of Out TV, and Mr.Gay Canada himself to take us all around what's known as Hollywood of the North. Now, I don't know about y'all, but I love a park within a city. And apparently, the park in downtown Vancouver is 10% larger in size than Central Park in Manhattan. Sign me up. I can't wait to learn from Josh all about the queer culture in Vancouver. I'll be linking up with Josh midshow for an extra sensible Q and gay for now Josh Rhymer take it away.
This is essentially the gayborhood I am on Davie street at Butte. This is also known as Davey village in the West End, which is the neighborhood. This is where in the past definitely It was almost all LGBTQ people would live and play. Now it's quite spread out around the city, but it's still known as the gayborhood. This is where you're going to find a lot of LGBTQ businesses and people. So Vancouver is a very gay-friendly city. And it has been that way for quite a long time. Our previous mayor was a big supporter of the community, he went to a lot of LGBTQ events and fundraisers and functions, especially in this area that I'm in right now with DavieStreet. This is where all the gay bars used to be. And still many are and in a lot of the businesses back in the day, you could be gay and holding hands with your partner here and not be worried. And today you can really do that pretty much anywhere in Vancouver and feel safe.
Basically, you'll want to find a place to stay that's downtown. Everything you'll want to do for the most part is downtown. There are some exceptions, of course, especially if you want to go out hiking and that sort of thing. But this is such a great downtown area. There are a lot of hotels around here. You can of course find some Airbnb s or Mr. B and B's. But I would say location is key to finding somewhere downtown or near downtown. And then you can take off to explore from there. And there is one hotel just behind me here on Davie Street. It's a Sandman. So that's if you want to be right in the thick of things in the heart of the gay village, that would be a great place to stay.
In East Vancouver, there is a street called commercial drive, which is kind of known as being the lesbian area. It's also great for kind of a hipster kind of hippie vibe if you want to take part in that. Otherwise, really, you could go anywhere in Vancouver like I said, it's really kind of spread out. It's not so concentrated like it used to be back in the day. But certainly, the West End and commercial drive in East Vancouver are the two main LGBTQareas.Right now I'm standing in the gym diva Plaza right in the heart of the Davie Village, our neighborhood. This is a space where people to come hang out and feel comfortable. It's named after Jim diva who was a local activist and the owner of the Little Sisters bookstore and LGBTQ Emporium. He was an important figure in our community and unfortunately, he passed away a few years ago. So this space was changed from just a regular Street to this communal area to hang out,t here's some positive messaging.
It's just a nice space to be right near the rainbow crosswalks. Along Davie street in the West End and commercial drive in East Vancouver, you'll find lots of local coffee shops often owned and operated by LGBTQ people or at least certainly friendly to the community. This city is known for having a ton of restaurants and any kind of food you could want to have you will find in Vancouver. If you come here in the summer months, you can expect beautiful warm weather you can sit out on a patio to have a drink or have your food in the winter months and surrounding months. It rains a lot. It's one of the warmest places to be in Canada in the winter, but you definitely have to put up with a lot of rain so not so much patio time, but still pretty vibrant area. lots of places to eat, drink and be merry. Probably one of the biggest issues in Vancouver is the cost of living here and especially housing. So you might not want to be living here permanently.
But of course, the cost kind of gets passed on to you. If you're going to do Airbnb or Mr. BnB or even try to find a hotel, it's not the cheapest place to be, that's for sure. And even restaurants can be pretty expensive. Everything here is not exactly cheap. So you need to bring some money to come visit. And for locals that makes it difficult to live right here in Vancouver proper, so a lot of people have to move to the outskirts or even further away. But as a visitor, I'm sure you'll find a place to stay. Just bring some money with you. And here we are at the interstitial Q and day I am withJosh Rhymer welcome, Josh. Hi. Good to be Hey, if you can just start off by introducing yourself your pronouns, and how you identify. Sure, I'm Josh Reimer he/him/his, and identify as a gay man. The words that come to mind when I say Vancouver go water trees, gay. What gives you the most life and energy living in Vancouver? I love that it's so gay-friendly.
And I can walk around anywhere especially in the downtown core holding hands with my fiance and nobody bats an eye and just great weather, especially for Canada. If our viewers have only one day in Vancouver, what is a must-do? You must go to Stanley Park. It's the big forested area that's downtown. On what museums or attractions would you recommend that someone must hit up? They should go to the Vancouver art gallery or badge. It's right downtown and they've always got something great to see. And the Museum of Vancouver. It's just across the bridge from downtown. They've always got great exhibits as well. How do people get around Vancouver? It's very easy to walk around if you're staying and playing downtown. And otherwise, we have great transit and the buses and a sky train system it's called which is basically subway but often aboveground in the sky. And there's also lots of car-share program so you could rent a car by the minute. Or you can use our bike share program to rent a bike by the day. Say I'm going to Vancouver.
What do I need to pack? Well, it depends on the time of year it does rain a lot here outside of the summer. So if you're coming outside of the summer, you want to bring some waterproof shoes and an umbrella. If you're coming in the summer, it's beautiful and hot. So you want to wear some sunscreen and some sunglasses. What is Vancouver's best-kept secret? The van dusen Gardensand Queen Elizabeth Park. These are two beautiful areas that are like in the southern end of the city. So they're outside downtown and maybe people don't think to go to them when they're here. But they're both beautiful, lots of flowers and just love that. And are there any like cafes that you'd recommend going to? Are you more of like a Starbucks or Dunkin staple town? Or is it more of the local mom and pop but there are some queer ones for sure. On Davie Street. There's Mel Rich's cafe. It's a great queer-owned independent cafe. And on Denman street is de lanius.
That's awesome as well. That's awesome. So Josh, thank you so much for coming to this little queer gay and I'm gonna give it back to you. Vancouver is rated one of the most walkable cities in NorthAmerica, so is a great place to walk around and it is very LGBT-friendly, especially in the downtown core, you really don have to worry, feel free to hold hands with someone of the same sex, no one's gonna even bat an eye, kind of the further you go out from downtown, maybe the less you want to be overtly having PDA, but it is generally a very gay-friendly area. So there really isn't much to worry about in terms of that. There also a ton of hiking around. But if you do have some accessibility issues, wheelchair accessibility is pretty prevalent everywhere you go, even on public transit, so you shouldn't have too many issues with that. So on Davey street is where you're going to find most of the gay bars and clubs. There's 1181, which is a cute little lounge for some fancy cocktails.
There is the junction for dancing and across from it is pumpjack where also there is usually more dancing as well or it's just a great place to get a beer. For the down debut Street. You can go to fountainhead pub to have a drink and some food across them. It is celebrities, which is kind of turned quite straight. It's kind of the trendy place for straight people to go and that's a gay club. And there is numbers which is one of our oldest gay bars, it's the classic kind of gay bar with the campy music. So there still are lots of options. There shouldn't be fewer than back in the day. But it's still a pretty vibrant area to check out at night as well. Vancouver is right on the west coast of Canada. So we are right by the water. And we have some of the warmest temperatures in the winter in Canada, at least for a major city. So you're going to get a lot of sunshine and beautiful warm weather throughout the summer. And then in the winter, there's going to be a lot of rain, it's quite similar to the weather in Seattle.
There's a lot of beautiful nature here. If you want to go whale watching, you can do that if you want to go hiking, you can do that. A couple hours away is Whistlerfor amazing skiing in the winter, or all kinds of great outdoor activities in the summer. So we really are in a beautiful location and one of the best downtown areas in NorthAmerica because there are beaches, there's a forest called Stanley Park. There's all kinds of great shopping and restaurants, you can walk this seawall down there and go kind of all the way around downtown. It's fantastic. I hope you will come visit Vancouver if you haven't yet. And if you have already been here, you know what I'm talking about. Everybody loves this place when I travel and I say I'm from Vancouver, people always say either that they've been there and love it and want to go back or that it's on their bucket list. We're often rated one of the best cities in the world. And there are just so many reasons which needs to come experience it for yourself.
So especially try to get here sometime between May and September for ideal weather. But otherwise, if you don't find some rain come any time of year and you'll find lots of things to see and do as an LGBTQ person, or just anybody who loves the outdoors and great people. Wow, I'm obsessed with a walkable city, hence why I live in Manhattan. But seeing how accessible Vancouver is for allis super, super rad. They have beaches, they have nature they have dancing on Davie Street. Thank you so much Josh for showing us all around your beautiful city of Vancouver. Now be sure to follow Josh Rhymer as he uncovers queer culture all around the globe with his channel as well. Next week, I'm putting on my cowboy boots and my cowboy hat, and I'm heading to the Midwest. I'm going to Tulsa Oklahoma.

A massage gun is a great way to relieve tension in specific muscles. We can do it from the comfort of our own couches while watching TV. The benefits of a massage gun can help you feel relaxed, feel calmer, improve circulation, and can relieve stress and tension throughout your body. It’s no wonder that we seek out full-body massages whenever we can.
I would love to say that I work out so much that a massage gun helps me loosen up the tight muscles from lifting all those weights. The truth is, I have pulled a muscle in my next twice just from shampooing my hair…Or there was that time I turned around in my chair awkwardly and pulled a muscle in my back. That actually happened the day before I got the massage gun to review luckily, the battery had a partial charge to it and I had my first opportunity to test it out.
First, let me introduce to you the B37 Massage Gun by Erkin Athletics…
What is the B37 Massage Gun?
Four Attachments for the B37 Massage Gun
The B37 Massage Gun is an ergonomic and percussive therapy machine. The handle sits at a 15° angle which helps lessen arm fatigue. The handle is also designed so that you can reach the hard-to-reach places that normally would require another person to assist.
- 5-speeds: the variable speed ranges from 1,400 to 3,200 RPMs. The lower speeds let you warm up your muscles and work through any sensitive muscles.
- 4 attachments: There are four different types of attachments you can use to work your muscles.
- Flat: The flat attachment is perfect for overall massaging
- Bullet: The bullet is great for zeroing in on specific knots, and is also perfect for hands and feet.
- Round Foam Ball: the foam attachment works best for all larger muscle groups
- Fork: this attachment is specifically designed for the neck and spine.
- Power: the massage gun delivers up to 56 pounds of stall force. What is stall force? Stall force is the amount of pressure you can apply to a massage gun before the motor stalls.
- 8-Hour Battery: The Samsung Lithium-ion battery provides plenty of power so you can really work out those knots. If you’re on the go, you won’t need to worry about recharging or running down the battery prematurely.
- Travel Case: Take your charged, or uncharged, B37 Massage Gun with you in the handy travel case that organizes everything neatly.
How Do You Use the B37 Massage Gun?
According to the information on their website, you should
- Turn the massage gun on before placing it on your body.
- Use speeds 1 - 3 for any muscle recovery and for speeds 4 and 5 for a soothing massage or pre-workout muscle warm-up.
- Glide the massage gun over the muscles and let the gun do the work. Apply pressure for added muscle relief.
- Breathe and relax and let the machine do the work. (in other words, if you’re tense, the massage will not work.)
Another step I would add is to make sure you know which attachment you need before you even begin step 1. This way, you don’t just turn it on, start massaging, and then realize you need a different attachment.
What I Liked About the B37 Massage Gun

There’s always the chance that you get a product that just doesn’t perform. I kind of knew that this was not the case when I turned on the B37. You could feel the power when you were holding it. In fact, it was so powerful I had it on the lowest setting and barely applied any pressure to my sore back. After a few swipes, I felt better.
The attachments are great and my two favorites are the foam ball and the flat attachment. They really promote muscle relaxation and work pretty well for me. To be honest, the fork scares me a little plus, I can’t really reach. I haven’t used the bullet yet because the foam ball and flat piece work great for me. Did I mention that they’re so easy to change too? You just pop them in or out—that simple.
Aside from the handy case, the battery is third in line because well, sometimes, you just forget to charge things. Hello, headsets anyone? I can use the massager for an hour or so and then put it away and use it another day.
What I Don’t Like About the B37 Massage Gun
What I didn't like about the B37 Massage Gun
It's fine when you are on the lower settings but when you get up to the higher settings, it gets a little noisy. Especially if you’re watching TV. If I need that much work on my muscles, I probably shouldn’t be sitting in front of the TV anyway. The lower settings work just fine for my muscles.
Also not a deal killer, but it has some heft to it. While the 15° handle does help with arm fatigue and wrist exhaustion, it’s still there especially if you have a particular knot to work out. Usually, I switch hands if possible or take a break here and there.
Is the B37 Massage Gun Worth the Price?
Prices for massage guns can vary and the B37 Massage Gun is decently priced compared to other massage guns. Considering the quality of the massage gun, all of the features, AND a lifetime warranty, I think it’s well worth the price.
Should You Buy the B37 Massage Gun?
Massage guns are perfect for anyone that is an endurance athlete, an avid weightlifter, or anyone suffering from tight muscles. The National Institute of Mental Health also discusses practicing self-care by using relaxing activities such as muscle relaxation. The institute also mentions using relaxing techniques for managing stress.
I would recommend the massage gun for anyone dealing with sore muscles and who may need relaxation in general.
What to Look for in a Massage Gun?
Speed and Power
When you are searching for a massage gun, you want to look for a gun that offers a range of speed and that has enough power to handle the stall force.
Size and Weight
Part of what I didn’t like about the B37 was the weight. It was a little heavy, especially for one-handed massaging. That’s why you need to make sure that the weight isn’t going to be too cumbersome and at the same time, it isn't too flimsy. There is no way around it but if you have a powerful gun, it’s going to be heavy or heavier. The size is a factor too. If it’s too large, it’ll seem awkward; if it’s too small, it just won’t get the job done.
Chances are, you’re going to want to take the gun with you. Having a nice travel case will make that a lot easier. You will want or need, something compact enough for those road trips and flights. Just don’t forget the charger.
Attachments make life and working out the kinks so much easier. While I really only use two, I can see where the four come in handy. Depending on how often you will use one, I would say a minimum of two attachments.

After a visit to Honolulu, I returned enthusiastic about the Imu, the traditional Hawaiian underground oven. If you’ve been to a traditional luau, you’ve had kalua pig cooked in an imu. The word kalua means “the hole”. Depending on the pig’s size, it is steamed in an underground pit, sometimes for days. Throughout Polynesia and in many other cultures, earthen ovens have been used for centuries. They are a highly effective way to produce succulent proteins and vegetables without an ounce of electricity.
Really, you can only eat so many carbonized weiners.
While I have always loved cooking outside and enjoy the morning ritual of getting the embers going, camping food is rarely special. It’s hard to control the fire without standing vigil every second. Something always burns. Something is always undercooked. In recent years, meals for the yearly camping trip with my college friends consist of variations on the foil pack theme: individual hobo packs and the like.
The flavor of the food cooked in an imu is unmatched and it frees you up to snuggle with your new love, go for a hike, watch Ellen’s last show, or even do some quick manscaping in your tent.
Consider the imu nature’s crock pot. Maybe you can recline in your new zero gravity camp chair where that perfect combination of rustling leaves and a few beams of sunshine poking through the trees will lull you into a nice nap. This doesn’t have to be just for camping. If you have even the smallest swatch of yard you can do this at home. This summer or fall put on some Don Ho and start digging. It’s worth the ten minutes of cardio. Here’s how to do it.
Pork shoulder is an easy protein to work with. Serve it Cuban style with tortillas, avocado, and salsa verde. An entire pig would be fun, but totally unrealistic if you’re camping. Cooking in a small hole would take a few hours to a half day for the meat to become flavorful and succulent.
This may feel intimidating but it’s really quite easy. Don’t let the digging scare you away.
What Do You Need to Make an Imu?
- 5-8 Burlap bags
- 8-10 Banana leaves, fresh or frozen
- 1 or 2 Grill grates
- 20 pound bag Charcoal
- Foil pans
How do You Prepare an Imu?

- Dig a hole three feet deep by four feet wide with sloping slides. Save the dirt you’ve excavated. You’ll need it. If you choose a shady area with soft ground, a typical small camping shovel will work. Go for a bigger hole if you’re feeding a crowd. The pit must be large enough to contain an entire bag of charcoal and the food you’ll be serving.
- Layer the bottom center of the pit with plenty of kindling. Dried leaves, small branches, and twigs are best. Try to avoid newspapers as the print could infuse toxic ink fumes into the food. On top of the kindling, add an entire bag of natural, untreated hardwood charcoal. I use Rockwood brand which comes in a 10 lb and 20 lb bag. For this recipe, use about ¾ of a 20 lb bag. Light the kindling and let the charcoal become white hot. This will take about an hour. Hawaiians would traditionally use hot stones heated to 1,000 degrees and placed carefully into the oven with giant tongs. We aren’t doing that.
- Wear gloves to avoid a steam burn. The cooking process requires steam and not dry heat, so banana leaves will help you easily achieve this. You can find these at Global Foods or other international markets. If your banana leaves are frozen, you can place a double layer of them directly over the coals. If they’re fresh, wet them down before placing them. You are ready to cook.
- Carefully straddle a campfire grill grate (readily available online) over the coals. If you’re cooking for a larger group, consider using two grates and you’ll need a larger hole. Place your foil-wrapped edibles on the grill grate. We will get to specifics about what to cook in a bit.
- Wet down four burlap bags or a roll of burlap and lay them over the foil-wrapped food. Be sure that the burlap extends beyond the opening of the hole. You are going to be covering all of this with dirt and you want to keep the dirt from falling into the imu.
- The final layer is a tarp (anything will do) followed by the excavated dirt which is shoveled over the top of the tarp in order to keep any steam from escaping. Estimating cooking time is tricky. For this pork shoulder recipe, plan for five hours if it goes too long then all the better. As you become more confident, consider other foods including whole vegetables or smaller pieces of beef brisket.
- When finished brush away any loose dirt from the edges of the covering material. Avoid getting dirt into the imu. Uncover the layers of banana leaves and burlap sacks. Allow the foil-wrapped foods to cool for ten minutes before serving.

Campus Pride, the preeminent resource for LGBTQ+ leadership development, diversity inclusion, and advocacy within higher education, today announced the annual Best of the Best Colleges and Universities for LGBTQ+ students in the United States, recognizing the work of 40 campuses in making their communities safer and more welcoming environments for students, faculty, and staff alike.
“Campus Pride created the Best of the Best List to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of these colleges and universities, creating safer, more welcoming campuses for LGBTQ+ people,” said Shane Windmeyer, Campus Pride Executive Director. “Students, prospective students, and their families, along with faculty and staff members, deserve to know whether they will be safe on campus, so they can make the best choices for their own academic success – and by creating inclusive, safe environments these colleges are taking responsibility for all students.”
Today’s announcement from Campus Pride features 40 four-year campuses from across the country. These campuses have achieved 5 out of 5 stars on the Campus Pride Index (CPI), the definitive national benchmarking tool measuring LGBTQ-friendly policies, programs, and practices. To earn a ranking of 5 out of 5 stars, campuses receive a percentage score from 90 to 100 based on their LGBTQ-inclusive policies, programs, and practices. The methodology to determine this year’s Best of the Best List was based on an overall score of 93 percent or higher.
"We are seeing more and more colleges earn 5 stars because campuses are doing more to support their trans students," states Dr. Genny Beemyn, the coordinator of Campus Pride's Trans Policy Clearinghouse. "While all colleges can and should do more to be trans-inclusive, many institutions are taking important steps forward."
“The work Campus Pride does every day to foster safer, more welcoming campuses across the country is creating positive change for students, staff, and faculty, as this year’s Best of the Best list reflects that with 40 colleges represented, up from 30 last year,” said Tom Elliott, Campus Pride Board Chair. “At a time when LGBTQ+ rights and other civil rights are under assault in states across the country, including Texas and Florida, it is as important as ever to recognize the campuses in these states working to create spaces where the next generation of LGBTQ+ leaders can learn and flourish.”
