When the U.S. military repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” its official policy on homosexuality in the services, Capt. Stephen Snyder-Hill was serving in Iraq. After years enduring the culture of fear and secrecy for gay soldiers, Snyder-Hill submitted a video to a Republican primary debate, asking the participants whether, if elected, they would extend spousal benefits to legally married gay and lesbian soldiers. His video was booed by the audience on national television.

Snyder-Hill’s story riveted the nation’s attention from national news shows to an episode of HBO’s The Newsroom to comments by President Obama. Soldier of Change not only captures the media frenzy as Snyder-Hill took his place at the forefront of this modern civil rights movement but also documents his twenty-year journey as a gay man in the army, which culminated in the most important battle of his life: defending the disenfranchised.

About the Author:

Stephen Snyder-Hill joined the military in 1988 and fought in the first Gulf War before his honorable discharge in 1996.

He is best known for his portrayal of Sulu in the Star Trek television series and movies.

Review:

“[The story] of how one man’s resolve gave courage to others and how he turned his public outing into an important surge of activism.”—Kirkus 

(Kirkus 2015-09-15)

“A moving and insightful epitaph to a destructive policy.”—Publishers Weekly 
 

  (Publishers Weekly 2014-07-11)

"[Soldier of Change] is an important story to read if you need to know where LGBT rights have been and who brought them forward. It’s also one to enjoy if you want an informal, easy-to-like memoir. Even in this post-DADT time, Soldier of Change is a book to call for."—Terri Schlichenmeyer, Washington Blade (Terri Schlichenmeyer Washington Blade 2014-12-24)

“Read [Snyder-Hill’s] story and know the price paid for intolerance and the limitless joy of triumph.”—Harvey Fierstein, Tony Award–winning actor and playwright
(Harvey Fierstein 2014-04-07)
