A gunman named Omar Mateen shot and killed 49 people and wounded 53 others when he opened fire inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, on June 12, 2016. “Right after Pulse happened, it hit me incredibly hard,” Vargas, 39, said as she strapped on wings of white fabric attached to her body with PVC tubing at a recent memorial event.
