In an interview with The Guardian, actor Alan Cumming talked about the gay generation gap, particularly how younger gay men don’t really care about the AIDS epidemic.

Cumming told an interviewer:

I know so many older gay men who are like: “You don’t know what the Aids crisis was like,” but I also know a lot of young gay guys who are like: “Who cares?”

He’s not grousing about those darn Millennials, though. Cumming takes a broader, more empathetic perspective:

I can understand why younger people can feel slightly patronised by older people who lived through it. But at the same time, I can also understand the bewilderment and despair that people from an older generation went through. I know people who went through all that, who are like: “Isn’t it amazing that these kids don’t have to worry like we did?”

Cumming’s latest film After Louie premiered in London last week.
