Within the context of its queer reconceptualization, desire can be conceived as a capacity to go beyond what is thinkable.

On the other hand, queer reconceptualization of the notion of desire understood as the capacity to go beyond what is thinkable opens a space for the unthinkable and unpredictable ways of thinking (for example, a thought of the outside in Foucault, a non-thought in Deleuze and Guattari, a notion of the happenstance in Nancy, etc.).
