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

Missy makes us wanna Lose Control with her fly dance moves and super hot protégés. She overcame a childhood of poverty and domestic abuse to make it to the top with her bestie Timbaland. While she's kept her sexuality private, queers won't forget she was performing – in a tux! swoon -- right alongside Madonna, Britney and Christina when they gay-kissed at the 2003 VMA's. Whether she’s Getting her Freak On with other women, lusting after Hot Boyz, both or neither, queers have been Working It on the dance floor to her music for years.


You might light this candle and look to Missy for inspiration and guidance in: seducing a younger woman, nurturing long-term creative collaborations, making a sweatsuit look sexy.


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