This article seeks to interrogate the moment of queer theory's 'birth' out of French influences, or what is designated by the umbrella term 'French Theory'. It specifically points to the operations of transformation and dislocation, subversion and perversion of French theoretical influences at work in two distinctive 'pairings' of French 'progenitor' and American queer 'offspring': Jacques Derrida with Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and Jacques Lacan with Judith Butler.
