It was Latin night at Pulse nightclub, a gathering of LGBTI people drinking and having a good time like any other.
RuPaul’s Drag Race star Kenya Michaels had taken to the stage, lip syncing her way through a Beyoncé classic.
Minutes later the shooting started.
The Puerto Rican queen, who competed on season four of Drag Race, managed to hide while 49 people were murdered and 53 people were injured.
Writing on her Instagram later, Kenya shared a picture of what it was like to perform at the nightclub for which she was a regular.
‘How to forget that night,’ she wrote. ‘Just minutes before the shooting. My last performance to all my best friend that were in front row, now all of them are gone.
‘My heart is broke. They took everything from me.’
TMZ has also managed to get snapchats and videos from people who were there at Pulse.
Earlier today, Pulse’s nightclub owner Barbara Poma has confirmed the club will re-open.
‘We just have to move forward and find a way to keep the [victims’] hearts beating and the spirit alive,’ she said. ‘We’re not going to allow anyone to take that away from us.’
