Prior: I can handle pressure, I am a gay man and I am used to pressure, to trouble, I am tough and strong [...]. (3.7.41)

As the angel comes crashing upon him, Prior draws strength from the fact that he's gay. This can be seen as an inversion of the stereotype that gay men are weak. Here Prior implies that being gay makes him stronger than most people – a life of discrimination has made him "tough."
