Three police officers walk through the streets of Noordeinde with their backs to the camera.

The 51-year-old Nathan Sebes came to work 25 years ago with the Overbosch team of the Hague police. Nathan was a woman at the time and six years ago he went through a transition and became the first trans man within the The Hague police unit.

The transition often causes misunderstanding in Nathan's environment. “For example, when I no longer went to the ladies' dressing room, but to the men's dressing room.”


In the TV program 'He, she them', Nathan talks candidly about his transition. Viewers also see him preparing for gender-confirming surgery.

By participating in this television program and sharing his personal story, Nathan hopes to contribute to making the police truly a police force for everyone. “A police force where people know where to find each other and connect. That happens too little lately," Nathan said in a statement Facebook post. “If I can only help one person by participating in the program, my goal has already been achieved.”

He, she, them

The TV program 'He, she, them' can be seen on NPO18 every week from Tuesday 21.15 October at 3 pm. In the first episode you see Nathan at work. He can also be seen in the episodes on October 25, November 8 and November 22.
