1. a person regarded as inadequate or impaired in some way.
2. Damaged Goods Press is a micro-press specializing in queer/trans poetry and flash fiction chapbooks. Our goal is simple: publish four (4) chapbooks a year that revolve around the beauty and terror of queer life. More often than not, people forget about the T & Q in LGBTQ. Trans and queer identified people remain somewhat on the back burner even within our own community, and Damaged Goods wants to change that by shining a bright light on the wonderful things that trans and queer writers are doing everyday.
We want to show the world that there is nothing wrong with us. We are not lost. We are not impaired. We are not inadequate. We are not worthless. We are not broken. We are diverse. We are brilliant. We are artists. We are lovers. We are sons. We are daughters. We are fathers. We are mothers. Damaged goods welcomes all gender variant writers: genderqueers, FTMs, MTFs, genderfucks, queers, & non-conforming gender types. As long as you identify as queer or trans that’s cool–send your work this way.
