Personal Life

Alia is bisexual, and in 2017, she told “Out” magazine, “I was a tomboy growing up, and I remember my mom asking me when I was 10, ‘Are you attracted to boys or girls?’ I said I don’t know. Now I consider myself bisexual, and I think balancing my male and female energies has been a big part of me growing as an actor.” In the same interview, she stated, “I used to be less outspoken. But as a woman, an Arab-American, and a member of the LGBTQ community, I have to use whatever voice I have. There’s no more delicacy in being quiet.” Shawkat enjoys painting and has showcased her art at gallery shows in Paris, Los Angeles, and Mexico City. Alia also enjoys making music and singing in jazz bars, and she sang on several tracks on the 2010 Fake Problems album “Real Ghosts Caught on Tape.” Shawkat is often mistaken for Ilana Glazer of “Broad City,” and in 2015, she guest-starred on the show as a lookalike and love interest of Glazer’s character.
