Different Strokes Documentary of the Day

Chris Birch made headlines last fall when he awoke from a stroke to discover he was no longer a straight, engaged-to-a-woman sports addict, but a flaming homosexual who quickly found a boyfriend and a job as a hairdresser. I Woke Up Gay, a new documentary about his, er, queerness, aired in the U.K. last night, and it has fueled the controversy over whether it's possible to become gay overnight. To no one's surprise, Chris, now Kris, is constantly confronted by people who aren't quite sure whether to believe his claim that his stroke "turned" him gay -- even his new boyfriend, Jak, is skeptical.
