Gilbert was a true NYC legend. He was there at the door of Sanctuary when I walked in in 1972, he was there at the door when I entered through the thresholds of New York New York, The (original) Loft, Cowboys & Cowgirls, Disco Inferno, The Saint, Limelight, Roxy and most every other club that opened or operated between 1970 and 2000. I never saw him be mean or rude to anyone and yet he always told you just how it was. Gilbert was one of the most stylish and sophisticated people I ever met. He made friends easily and kept them for decades. His gentle way and sexy demeanor broke a lot of hearts and he was a true unique and one-of-a-kind man and I know he will be missed by generations of people who were lucky enough to have known him. Rest in peace Legend, St. Peter is certainly out of a job guarding those golden gates. You will be missed.
