Toxic friend or respecting my relationship? 🤔

Summer is here and my friends are planning a group trip to a lake house. The only problem is that my boyfriend isn't welcome because one of my friends doesn't like him. Despite my excitement to invite my boyfriend, the leader of the group told me he couldn't come and I was expected to go alone. When I expressed my discomfort with this, my friends accused me of putting a boy over our friendship. Now, I'm left wondering if I should prioritize my relationship or my friendships. Reddit, what do you think? Would I be the a**hole if I didn't go on the trip just because my boyfriend is excluded?

Friends or boyfriend? The real problem is controlling 'leader' friend.
