A Welsh athlete claims that he “woke up gay” after succumbing to a stroke as a result of a gym accident.
Chris Birch, a former rugby player said that he was trying to show off in front of friends by doing a back flip. In doing so he broke his neck and suffered a stroke. He was immediately transported to a hospital and said that he woke up with an extremely different personality.
"It sounds strange but when I came round I immediately felt different," Birch said.
The 26-year-old said that he truly noticed a difference in his sexuality while watching a TV show featuring a handsome actor.
"I felt my stomach flutter and the same feelings I used to have for pretty girls,” Birch said. "I had never felt like that about a man before but I knew immediately what the feeling was. I fancied him."
