Flaming Idols are altar candles featuring inspiring figures of the LGBTQ community, created and handmade by Philadelphia artist and activist Robin Markle.

Billie Eilish is a singer and songwriter best known for her 2015 break-out hit Ocean Eyes. At the 62nd Grammy Awards, she became the youngest person and first woman to win four main Grammy categories – Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year – in the same year. She has released numerous chart-topping songs. Despite having a song titled Wish You Were Gay, Billie has been private about her sexuality. When fans accused her of queer-baiting in a music video she responded simply, “I love girls.”

You might light this candle and look to Billlie for inspiration and guidance in: queerifesting rapid success, creating art with a sibling, combating body shaming.


Each unscented soy wax candle burns for approximately 10 hrs. Glass votives are 2.5" high and 2" wide at the base.
