    Abstract:
    As a new theory in the humanities and social studies, Queer Theory, as a broad theory encompassing any understanding that is anti-normativity and anti-fixed identity, is often applied to sexual matters. Whereas, others have discussed Queer Theory from the perspective of Identity Politics in sexual matters, I discuss Queer Theory from a phenomenological philosophical perspective. I take into consideration Katherine Johnson's caveat: "identity politics alone will not achieve the necessary impacts that are required to re-imagine the world we live in. Instead they are likely to win particular legislative reforms that regulate subjectivity, and rights that can easily be taken away under new regimes." Sexuality a Psychosocial Manifesto (Polity, 2015). In short, I suggest that Queer Theory needs a new philosophical understanding of the person, prior to a legal one, that will assist in re-imagining the world we live in.
