A crowd of people gathered outside the gay bar June 12, one year since the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting, to remember the people killed and many others injured.

Instead of focusing on the chaos and heartache following the morning of June 12, when a gunman opened fire inside the packed Pulse nightclub, taking hostages and 49 lives, a year later the city is celebrating. The gunman was killed in a shootout with police.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs encouraged the city to continue healing and talked about how the tragedy won't define the city.

"I want people to know we are all humans", said Damiani.

The service began what would be nearly 24 hours of solemn remembrances.

"Friends and myself would go to Pulse Nightclub if not weekly, bi-weekly, so it was one of the more popular places to go to", said Garza.

South Florida's prominent gay community, Wilton Manors, will also honor the Pulse shooting victims from 6 p.m.to 7 p.m. Monday night at the Pride Center with a remembrance flag hanging ceremony.

As part of the governor's proclamation Scott has ordered that USA and State of Florida flags be flown at half-staff until Monday at sunset at all state and local buildings, installations and grounds throughout Florida. It would be followed by another midday service at the nightclub, an evening gathering in the heart of downtown Orlando and a final, music-filled late-night service at the nightclub. But she said she is grateful for the outpouring of support. The club's owner, Barbara Poma, is developing plans to build a memorial at the Pulse site.

"I called him mini Manny because he was cute, full of life, always happy", Timi said. "I miss everything it stood for".

Ceremonies were held throughout the day to remember the 49 victims who were killed in the massacre one year ago.
