My super hot friend gets treated better than me. Is “pretty privilege” a thing in the gay community?

Hi Jake, I have a friend who is the epitome of gay male beauty standards–tall, fit, great smile, and he looks good in almost anything he wears.

He’s basically a 10 out of 10 on a hotness scale, but we’ve been friends for so long that I don’t really see him that way anymore.

Clearly, I’m the exception, however, because there’s this certain energy that seems to follow him everywhere. At first, I thought I was imagining it, but over time it has become clear that when we go out to the gay bars and other spaces, he gets more attention and better treatment than me and my other friends. Sometimes he even gets discounts and/or free stuff, especially drinks from bartenders. I’ve also seen him get his chai latte “on the house” at our local coffee shop because the barista thought he was cute.

I’ve even seen him get upgraded to business class on a plane after he smiled at the gate agent.Subscribe to our daily newsletter for a refreshing cocktail (or mocktail) of LGBTQ+ entertainment and pop culture, served up with a side of eye-candy.It just seems like everyone is nicer and friendlier to him, even though I wouldn’t say his personality is any more magnanimous than the rest of ours.
