Truth Be Sung

Gay pop crooner pimps first CD in three years with Cleveland concert.


On his latest CD, Truth Stained Lies — a collection of songs about his identity — New York's openly gay Ron Morris sings about how "Truth is slippery. What is fact? What is fiction? Believe what you will," he says. "There's a little bit of truth in all of it. And a fair share of lies." But here's a reality check: Tracks from Morris' first two discs, Speak True and Boyfriend and Other Sides of Love, have made ripples on the national level, from NPR's This Way Out to Logo's NewNowNext programs. He goes onstage at 9:30 tonight at Bounce, 2814 Detroit Avenue. Tickets are $10. Call 216-357-2997 or visit
