TLC glass votive altar candle from Flaming Idols. Whether you're a recovering Catholic, a secular Jew, a satanist, a pagan, a witch – or some combination! - this altar candle will fill your queer spiritual needs.

T-Boz, Left Eye and Chili were ahead of their time. They were crazy, sexy and not too cool to be sex educators, using condoms as accessories to start conversations about safer sex. They gave us power songs about following your dreams and not changing your body to fit what somebody else likes. They talked about AIDS and alcoholism, keeping it real in an industry full of songs about money and rides until the death of Left Eye ended the group all too soon. Rest in power, Left Eye. We’ll never forget the time you set your abuser’s shoes on fire — keep givin’ em hell wherever you are!

You might light this candle and look to TLC for inspiration and guidance in: staying safe during sexy times, standing up for yourself, dealing with grief and loss

Candle is hand-poured with soy wax and burns for approximately 10 hours. Glass votives are 2.5in high and 2in wide at the base. Each votive is affixed with an opaque sticker with an image of a person and on the opposite side, a translucent sticker with biographical information about the person. Stickers are water-resistant.

We trust all who celebrated Chanukkah this year had a joyous festival of light, hope and happiness. We were a bit more festive and non-traditional with our Hanukkiah/Menorahs this year. We discovered Flaming Idols candles in Provincetown over the summer and picked up Rachel and Dolly. Our former Temple in Boston has a cantata each Chanukkah Season and this year brought in clergy from various progressive churches to light the candle for each night. This was the spring board to add to our Flaming Idols collection to create our own menorah using a collection of legendary ladies whose art and activism continues to brighten the dark corners of ignorance, fear, and hatred. The light shines peace upon those in conflict all over the planet with understanding, courage, and love.
