I haven’t played golf in years, but this would definitely be a good time to break out the clubs if I still had any. That’s because Mike Manning, the bisexual intern for the Human Rights Campaign who starred in MTV’s “Real World,” has been announced as a special guest at the 2010 Dallas Fairway to Equality Tournament, a fundraiser for HRC. The annual tournament, set for June 5 at Firewheel Golf in Garland, has also added a men’s flight for the first time, which is perfect for me since I’m a man. And Manning will be auctioned off as a caddy during the Calcutta Event at Jack’s Backyard the night before the tournament. All George Rekers bag-carrying jokes aside, I’m not sure I’ll be able to outbid the heavy-hitters from the Federal Club, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be waiting for Manning at the 19th hole. Early bird registration runs until May 21 for $125. Purchase tickets by going here.
