Happy Birthday Gay Games!

Many people don't realize that Gay Games founder Tom Waddell had a child who was conceived around the time of the first Gay Games. Jessica Waddell Lewinstein (right, with her mom) is the daughter of Waddell and Gay Games co-founder Sara Lewinstein. She is the ultimate Gay Games love child.

The San Francisco Chronicle caught up with Jessica to celebrate her 27th birthday. It's also the 28th anniversary of the first Gay Games, which took place in San Francisco Aug. 28-Sept. 5, 1982.
