This introductory chapter explains the theme of this book, which is about the relevance of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari's philosophy to queer theory. The book discusses the becoming-DeleuzoGuattarian of queer theory and the becoming-queer of Deleuze and Guattari's theory. Rather than dismissing queer (theory), it reaffirms the seductive power of the concept of ‘queer’ and its continuing force to inspire thinking nowadays. This chapter also analyses the relevant works of Judith Butler and Daniel Paul Schreber.

Keywords: Gilles Deleuze; Felix Guattari; queer theory; becoming-queer; Judith Butler; Daniel Paul Schreber
