In 'La Queer Theory est made in the USA', Lawrence R. Schehr underlines the pitfalls on an uncritical, un-problematized re-appropriation of Queer Theory to national and cultural contexts other than its original one (North America). Queer Theory itself is predicated upon specific signifiers characteristic of the English-speaking context, that is the closet metaphor (which determines visibility in binary terms) and homophobia. Eager to challenge universalising North American queer thought, Schehr argues for Post-Queer Theory instead, a theory that would extend the problematique of Queer Theory to other national contexts while taking into account the specificities of other cultural environments.
