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

Rachel is the smart butch nerd that a lot of us fantasize about. “From the Poindexter glasses to the Oxford Ph.D. to her perfectly crafted sarcasm, Maddow is as geek-chic as she is lesbian-chic,” says Salon magazine. Rachel is that cute college butch you always had a crush on but always worried you weren’t smart enough to talk to. But even if you never got to talk to that girl, you can still have fun watching her destroy conservatives on TV!


You might light this candle and look to Rachel for inspiration and guidance in: increasing your smarts, besting someone in a debate, channeling tomboy femme


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