Alex Meyrick

Veterans Community Worker London

Before joining Fighting With Pride, Alex worked for the NHS, moving between community pharmacy and hospital pharmacy for 12 years. Working in a major London hospital throughout the Pandemic, Alex worked to provide medication, continue services and ensure the best care for patients throughout lockdowns and the ever-changing landscape of healthcare in a global emergency.

Originally moving from her home of Dorset to London in 2014 to train as an actor at Italia Conti, Alex graduated in 2018 alongside maintaining her NHS career. Her acting career highlights include representing Italia Conti at the Sam Wanamaker Festival at Shakespeare’s Globe, winning the runner-up prize for the Carlton Hobbes BBC Radio Drama Award, receiving the Laurence Olivier bursary from the Society of London Theatre and along with a fantastic cast, taking an award-winning production of The Laramie Project to Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017.

She is a proud member of the military family and a soon-to-be Military Spouse; her grandfather served in the RAF as a ground engineer and her partner – now fiancee, Leah, has been proudly serving in the Army since February 2021. She is ever keen to be as involved as possible in the military family to which she belongs! Alex is passionate about LGBT+ history and supporting older members of our community, with an emphasis on hearing and understanding lived experiences. She wants to highlight the stories of those who fought so bravely for the rights we now enjoy and support those who can guide us through the next stage of the fight for all members of the LGBT+ community to live freely and equally in society.

Alex spends her time attending LGBT+ events across London, writing what could tentatively be referred to as stand-up comedy and getting used to living back in the countryside with her partner in Wiltshire. She is overwhelmingly proud to be a part of Fighting With Pride, and has strong connections with the military and LGBT+ sector throughout the capital to help with anything that you may need support with. You can usually find her planning the next big event for FWP Veterans – from Pride in London to National Remembrance Events – she loves making sure LGBT+ Veterans feel included and celebrated wherever possible.
