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

Leslie Knope is a fictional character played by Amy Poehler on the show Parks & Recreation who identifies herself as Queen of the Gays! She fights back against right-wing antagonists who try to stop her from holding a gay wedding for the zoo penguins or providing comprehensive sex ed to seniors. Maybe the queerest thing about Leslie is her devotion to her chosen family, and especially her best friend Ann. This lady gets things done and is there for her friends no matter what.

You might light this candle and look to Leslie for inspiration and guidance in: executing a major project, being a supportive friend, getting pregnant, chutzpah to stay motivated working within the system.


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