The Love and Rage Revolutionary Anarchist Federation formed in 1993 out of the remaining groups in the Love and Rage Network.

The Love and Rage Network had its genesis in a 1989 conference to launch a North American revolutionary anarchist newspaper. The formerly Trotskyist Revolutionary Socialist League (RSL) was one of the main forces behind this. So was the Minneapolis-based Revolutionary Anarchist Bowling League. Soon after they began publishing their newspaper - Love and Rage. Many anarchists were wary of the network and their federation, wondering if they were truly anarchist. Some anarchists even wondered if the RSL was a Trotskyist group performing some kind of entryist tactic.

In 1991 the groups putting out the newspaper formed the Love and Rage Network. In 1993, the core New York, Minneapolis and San Francisco groups expressed the desire for a tighter federal structure, which caused many other groups to leave. This is when the Love and Rage Network was renamed the Love and Rage Revolutionary Anarchist Federation.

The Love and Rage Revolutionary Anarchist Federation dissolved in 1998. The Fire by Night group was formed around this time. Another group coming out of Love and Rage began publishing The Utopian.
