(Audio) Bring Your Own: "Telling my Parents" by Jewel Williams

Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have 7 minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on "All Things New Orleans" and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.

Under the theme of "Heard: Why the Young Feel Old," Jewel Williams talks about love and the 16th century. Specifically,  after she gets asked out by the person she has a crush on, she gets some help from William Shakespeare on how to come out to her parents.
