We Are Many Nomos 2016, provided a valuable space for connection, to be the majority for once. A wide range of speakers and activities covered the emotional and cultural aspects of childlessness and also, the practical, such as housing and options for living in older age. I was proud to be a participant in the first conference, and comforted by the wide range of people present. Each of us found our way to the conference by different life routes, valuable humans with something to offer to the world. It was a place to be seen and for our stories to be honoured.
