This beautiful and must have coffee table book is a compilation of artistry of multiple disciplines. It was created as a homage in honour of the 49 lives that the world lost on June 12, 2016 in Orlando. These lights were simply enjoying Latin night at Pulse Nightclub when they were gunned down, changing the LGBTQ+ community everywhere, forever. The kind contributions; all memories, dedications, thoughts, and beautiful art by 49 creative human beings grace these pages. Cuarenta y Nueve is the vision of curator, and contributor, bestselling author Joie Lamar.

All of the proceeds of this book will be donated to support the work of Pride School Atlanta and GLAAD in perpetuity.


These are the 49 lives lost on June 12, 2016.
Remember their names.
