I think that agender means that one does not perceive oneself as having a gender, while genderqueer is sort of a catchall term for someone who isn't completely binary, as well as being an identity on its own. A genderqueer person might perceive themself as having a gender, but not an entirely binary one. Also check this thread out:

Genderqueer is more of an umbrella term while agender is to not feel one has a gender/to be genderless.
