Elliot, who came out as transgender in December 2020, was covered up in a thick black down coat with the hood pulled up.

The Umbrella Academy star also covered his short dark hair with a matching baseball cap and wore a set of slim jeans rolled up at the bottom above his simple black trainers.

Awkwafina (real name: Nora Lum) contrasted Elliot’s dark look with a fuzzy cream-colored coat that she wore unbuttoned.

She had on a brown top underneath it and black jeans, along with black zip-up boots, and she let her lustrous raven locks cascade down her chest.

The Nora From Queens star accessorized with a large black bag slung over her shoulder, and she kept her phone clutched in her hand.

Both wore black masks to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, despite being outside.

It is not known how long the two have been friends. They don’t share any acting credits.

Late last year, Elliot, who was assigned female at birth, came out as transgender and announced that he used he/him and they/them pronouns interchangeably. 

Elliot wrote that he was ‘also scared of the invasiveness, the hate, the “jokes” and of violence’ that he could face as an openly transgender person. 

Earlier this year, he made history as the first trans-masculine person to grace the cover of Time Magazine, following cover shoots with transgender actress Laverne Cox and a cover focused on nonbinary people from 2017.

In October, Elliot spoke out following the release of Dave Chappelle’s Netflix standup special The Closer, which featured a lengthy section that many critics lambasted as being transphobic.

They wrote on social media that they supported ‘the trans, nonbinary, and BIPOC employees at Netflix’ who staged a walkout to fight ‘for more and better trans stories and a more inclusive workplace.’

Awkwafina made an appearance earlier in November at AFI Fest in Los Angeles to support the premiere of her new film Swan Song, which stars Oscar winner Mahershala Ali.

In the Apple TV+ science fiction film, which also stars Naomie Harris and Glenn Close, Mahershala plays a father diagnosed with a terminal illness who is given the option to leave a clone of himself in his place when he dies.

The film will be released on Apple’s streaming service on December 17. 

The rapper-turned-actress’ Comedy Central series Nora From Queens returned for a second season earlier in the fall to positive reviews from critics.

She also scored some major commercial hits earlier this year with the Disney animated film Raya And The Last Dragon, which earned over $130 million, and Marvel’s Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings, which scored over $430 million at the box office.

Both films were also well received by critics.
