Thirty-six people were arrested at Saturday's Straight Pride Parade and protests.

On Tuesday, Boston Municpal Court Judge Richard Sinnott denied the prosecution’s motions to dismiss charges of "disorderly conduct and resisting arrest" against seven of the arrested. There are more arraignments pending.

Four officers were injured during the response to Saturday's events.

We review what we know about what happened.
