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


Elliot Page has acted since childhood, first finding mainstream success portraying a 14 yr old vigilante who kills pedophiles in Hard Candy. He continued to play a string of independent, offbeat, often kinda queer characters. Elliott came out publicly as gay in 2014 and as a non-binary trans guy in 2020. Of trans communities they say, “We know who we are. People cling to these firm ideas [about gender] because it makes people feel safe. But if we could just celebrate all the wonderful complexities of people, the world would be such a better place.”

You might light this candle and look to Elliot for inspiration and guidance in: embracing independence, learning about international queer cultures, publicly naming abuse(rs).


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