In this chapter, Lawrence La Fountain-Stokes examines Charles Rice-González’s I Just Love Andy Gibb: A Play in One Act. He frames this engagement by asserting, following Marlon Riggs, that “black men loving men is the revolutionary act.” Reading selected scenes from I Just Love Andy Gibb, La Fountain-Stokes characterizes the play as a “therapeutic dream play,” in which black gay men can learn to love themselves and each other and to heal from internalized racism.

In this chapter, Ramón H. Rivera-Servera interviews I Just Love Andy Gibb: A Play in One Act creator Charles Rice-González. In the first part of the interview, Rice-González discusses his own politics of art production as a black queer Puerto Rican writer and further explains his investments in I Just Love Andy Gibb. In addition to this, Rice-González also meditates on the politics of visibility and invisibility within African American and Latino communities.
