UNITED STATES–Rock star Bono, of the international band U2, will lead Glamour Magazine’s ‘Woman of the year’ list as the first man ever.

According to sources, the magazine’s editor and chief Cindi Leive wanted to expand traditional methods of honoring only women into adding men like Bono who are heavily involved with the activism and rights of women.

Over the years, Bono has been an advocate in gender equality. Bono has also helped to contribute billions of dollars to 35 of the poorest countries for the cause of AIDS.

In addition to Bono, Glamour magazine will also feature the likes of prominent wonen throughout the year. Olympian Simone Biles, Emily Doe, victim of college swimmer Brock Turner, fashion designer Miussia Prada, actress Zendaya Coleman, singer Gwen Stefani, ISIS kidnap survivor Nadia Murad, IMF chief Christine Lagarde, and Black Lives Matter activists Opal Tometi, Patrice Cullors, and Alicia Garza will all be featured amongst Bono.
