Presenters of the Open Letter to the Prime Minister - Ivan Heng, Alan Seah and Pam Oei.

In the run up to the Parliamentary petition to repeal Section 377A of the Penal Code, Seah co-organised an open letter to the Prime Minister online, urging the abolition of the anti-gay statute[1].

The 400-page letter which was supported by 8120 signatories was hand-delivered to the Prime Minister's office at The Istana on Monday, 22 October 2007 at 2.30pm by Seah, theatre doyen Ivan Heng and actress/singer Pam Oei.

The National Day (9 August 2011) edition of TODAY newspaper featured a full-page article on Pink Dot, implying that the LGBT community was regarded as an integral part of Singaporean society on her 46th birthday. It interviewed Alan Seah and published a huge photo of Seah and his mother, seated on a wheelchair[2].

On 1 April 2021, Coffee Talk[3] uploaded a video to YouTube in which host Daniel Yun interviewed Seah on what it meant not to repeal Section 377A and more[4]. The interviewer deliberately took an opposing rhetoric to up the heat of the conversation, in line with the platform's aim of channelling diversity and challenging mindsets.
