"Clueless" star and Fox News' contributor Stacey Dash says Republicans are not against same-sex marriage, despite what you might have heard.

The 47-year-old was out for a hike on Friday, June 13, when she was approached by a TMZ cameraman who asked her whether or not the GOP could get more of a younger following if it changed its views on same-sex marriage.

"But we are for equal marriage," Dash said of her fellow Republicans, "We're not against that at all. We believe that everyone should have the same right."

When the cameraman said there are some mixed messages on that front, like from the Tea Party, she continued: "That's just propaganda, it's not true. You know? That's just a certain amount of people. You can't just throw a blanket over everyone because certain people have one opinion."

Generalizations may not always be accurate, but the official stance of the Republican Party is against LGBT equality, and the party's national platform calls for a ban on same-sex marriage. Some younger Republicans, however, are breaking from a hard-set conservative stance on social issues like same-sex marriage and marijuana legalization.

Last month, Fox News announced Dash would join the network as a contributor after weeks of rumors about her hiring. She previously appeared on Fox News after announcing her support for Mitt Romney during the 2012 election.
