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


Megan Rapinoe is a world-renowned soccer player for US teams. She holds multiple Olympic medals and FIFA Women's World Cup wins. Megan is an Ambassador for Athlete Ally, a non-profit focused on ending homophobia and transphobia in sports. Megan gained media attention at a 2016 soccer match for kneeling during the national anthem in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. She stated, “Being a gay American, I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties. It was something small that I could do.”

You might light this candle and look to Megan for inspiration and guidance in: cultivating physical strength and skill, getting paid what you're worth, finding yr role in movements for justice.


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