I Woke Up Gay

At 21, Chris Birch was a typical, burly, rugby playing lad with a girlfriend and a job in a bank, but after a stroke everything changed. Today Chris looks different, sounds different and has a completely different life - he is a gay, image conscious hairdresser interested in fashion and interior d├ęcor. Chris has lost touch with some former friends and family and cannot recall many of the details of his life before the stroke. This film follows Chris as he gets to grips with his new life and his new personality, tries to discover who he used to be and attempts to build bridges with some of the people he has lost touch with.
