Flaming Idols are altar candles featuring inspiring figures of the LGBTQ community, created and handmade by Philadelphia artist and activist Robin Markle.
In the repressive Reagan era, Blanche, Dorothy, Rose & Sophia showed us the beauty of chosen queer family. They supported each other through the loss of siblings and friends, celebrated new jobs and relationships, and frequently discussed their sex lives! While there was plenty of teasing, ultimately they always accepted each other and the queer people in their lives. Girls, thank you for being a friend!
You might light this candle and look to the Girls for inspiration and guidance in: Cultivating a positive collective living situation, accepting peoples' difference, rocking shoulder pads, being a supportive friend!
Each unscented soy wax candle burns for approximately 10 hrs. Glass votives are 2.5" high and 2" wide at the base.
