Younger gay men and women live in a much different world than the Stonewall generation did 40 years ago. Mark Harris calls it the "gay generation gap," and he wrote about it in last week's New York Magazine.

For older gay activists like Harris, the AIDS crisis and the Reagan decade are central themes in the struggle for civil rights. But, he tells host Guy Raz, gay men and women under the age of 30 are tired of the Stonewall generation prattling on about the struggle.
