He added a pop of color with an intriguing green rose, positioned in his top pocket.

According to Affinity magazine, the flower is a longstanding queer symbol dating back to the 19th century.

It has links to author Oscar Wilde who, in 1982, is said to have asked his friends to wear the green carnation adornment in the lapel of their jacket.

As such, it became linked with supporters of homosexuality, as same sex relationships were banned at the time.

After taking time to pose on the red carpet, The Umbrella Academy star, 34, enjoyed a chat with Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington and wife Rose Leslie.

Elliot, who is an Oscar-nominated actor, has a few gigs on the go currently including TV show Ark: The Animated Series, Robodog and Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphin.

Last year Elliot said he wants to be known using the pronouns he/they and has now begun his transition.

The producer from Canada has worked in the showbiz industry for two decades and is best known for starring in Juno and The Umbrella Academy.

‘MY AUTHENTIC SELF’

In December 2020, Elliot wrote on his Instagram: “I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot.

“I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life. I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey.

“I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self.

“I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place.

“I will offer whatever support I can and continue to strive for a more loving and equal society.”

FAB ABS

Since then Elliot hasn’t been shy in sharing snaps of his incredible body and flashed his abs in a shirt-free shot.

Elliot smiled sweetly as he donned just a pair of black jeans for the topless shot.

The cheeky chap captioned the mirror selfie: “TGIF” (Thank God it’s Friday).

His tattoo could also be seen on his chest and his arm as he took the photo while looking at his phone.

Pit Pony star Elliot also treated his followers to a snap showing him in shorts as he posed by a pool.

SURGERY JOURNEY

Elliot has so far had top surgery as part of his transition.

This involves the removal of the breast tissue to create a masculine chest.

In May 2021 Elliot looked happy as he posed shirtless publicly for the first time since undergoing the surgery.

In a tell-all conversation with Oprah Winfrey on Apple TV+ in April 2021, the 34-year-old said he had known he was a boy since he was a toddler.

Elliot opened up about the moment he saw himself in the mirror for the first time after coming out of the shower following his transition.

He said of the tender moment: “Getting out of the shower and the towel’s around your waist and you’re looking at yourself in the mirror.

“You’re just like, ‘there I am’. I’m not having the moment where I’m panicked, I’m not having all those little moments.

“It’s being able to touch my chest and feel comfortable in my body probably for the first time. Tears of joy.”
