Miss Netherlands

A biological male has been crowned as ‘Miss Netherlands’ and will go on to compete for the title of Miss Universe later this year in El Salvador.

22-year-old transgender model Rikkie Kolle was selected as Miss Netherlands 2023 and is the first biological male to win the historically female competition.

Breitbart reports: Announcing their decision, the jury said during the final according to Dutch public broadcaster NOS: “She has a rock-solid story with a clear mission… The jury is convinced that the organization (of Miss Netherlands, ed.) will be happy to work with this young woman.”

Kolle said: “I am only too happy to commit to all the little Rikkies who have to deal with rejection from their family, their transition to the person they desire to be. Help make their self-image and acceptance stronger, untouchable.

“Through my commitment and strength, I hope to bring change to society. Ultimately, it’s about being able to become who you are without issues and that that can happen when YOU want.”

The Moluccan-Dutch model previously competed in Holland’s Next Top Model reality television programme in 2018, reaching the final round of contestants. Kolle was the second transgender model to participate in the show following Loiza Lamers, who won the contest in 2015.

Kolle will be allowed to hold the title of Miss Netherlands for one year and will be entitled to compete at the Miss Universe competition in El Salvador later this year.

The model will become the second transgender contestant to take part in the international competition, following Spain’s Angela Ponce in 2018.
