Shades of Exotic
This blog celebrates the richness and beauty of people some may deem as "other." The term "exotic" was consciously chosen particularly because of its complexity and controversy, with the aim of taking something that has been used as an insult at worst and a backhanded compliment at best and turning it into a space of beauty and positivity. Hopefully, this blog leaves you inspired and sparks discussion.
