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


Margaret is not afraid to be an out(spoken) polyamorous bisexual, and she’s not afraid to be an activist. Over the years she has championed many causes, including a lot of soap-boxing for gay marriage. She has said, “I urge you all … during these times of chaos and war, to love yourself without reservations and to love each other without restraint. Unless you’re into leather." Swoon! We’re fanning ourselves over here.

You might light this candle and look to Margaret for inspiration and guidance in: Mommy issues, breaking through internalized fatphobia, being hilarious.


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