Gilbert’s to move into former Outwrite building; promises to honor legacy of corner of ‘gay and gay’

Gilbert's Cafe and Bar, the gay-friendly restaurant, is ready to take over the space at 10th Street and Piedmont Avenue where former gay landmark Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse was once located.

On the Facebook page named Gilbert's Expansion — 10th and Piedmont, Gilbert's owners Gilbert and Sean lay out their future plans, including honoring the space — long dubbed the corner of gay and gay — that has been an iconic location for LGBT Atlanta for more than a decade.

"The corner of 10th and Piedmont has been a beacon of progressive attitudes, acceptance and respect, we wish to continue that legacy as the city matures and welcomes an ever increasing diversity and a growing respect for general human rights," said owners Sean and Gilbert in a Facebook posting made yesterday.
