On 12 June 2016, the city of Orlando, Florida, suffered the worst mass shooting by a single gunman in American history. Omar Mateen killed 49 people, and injured dozens more when he opened fire inside the LGBT nightclub Pulse.

The mass killing shocked the world, with tributes and vigils taking place in all corners of the globe. The people of Orlando united together, organising mass events to honour those killed, and raised millions of dollars to support the families of the victims.

In the months since, the Pulse shooting has ignited debate in Florida and across the US about gun control and safety in the country, with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton calling for a ban on "weapons of war" in the US after the shooting.

Mateen also reportedly pledged allegiance to jihadist group Islamic State (Isis) in a call to emergency services during the attack, which has led some, including Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, to call for tighter restrictions on immigration into the US.

Amidst this national and international debate, many in Orlando are still healing from the physical and mental scars of the attack. IBTimes UK visited the city and the site of the Pulse attack, to find out how the community are coping just months after the tragic shooting.
