According to a story in Mirror site, a previously straight "football-loving" skinhead turned into a flaming hairdresser after suffering a stroke.
"One afternoon, they went to the park to play football and enjoy the sun. Chris was mucking around and to make his friends laugh did a somersault. But something went very wrong.
Chris had landed in an odd position and snapped his neck, which had made his body suffer a stroke. His terrified friends called the paramedics and when Chris arrived in Royal Gwent Hospital his family were waiting for him.
“Everyone said I was more sarcastic, behaved differently and that even my mannerisms had changed, but to me the way I felt was natural. So I started avoiding seeing my old friends who wanted me to be someone I wasn’t,” he recalls.
But the changes weren’t only in Chris’s personality. Other things about him had started to change, too, things he couldn’t put down to recovering from the accident.
“I was watching TV one day when a really handsome guy came on. I felt my stomach flutter and the same feelings I used to have for pretty girls came across me. I had never felt like that about a man before but I knew immediately what the feeling was. I fancied him,” Chris says."
